If you're trying to do something useful, then why did you do that!? If you haven't tried any of these, then why don't you!? I think that many students who want some [url=http://my-crossroad.com/2013/02/advantages-of-getting-masters-degree.html]masters degree[/url]s aren't interested in this dispute. The finality of a thing it's important, not our personal ego.

Thousands of school children in some states in India have got stripped-down versions of laptops and more states are announcing similar schemes to get votes. The laptop is often free though, while the tablet is not. I guess it adds to the confusion of parents and children on what to opt for. I guess here we'd call it OLTPC - One Laptop and/or Tablet per Child! - Kariyatil

This whole thing sounds very much like the US-based "One Laptop per Child" story, which was all hype, promises, shifting goals, self-congratulatory storyline which much of the media bought and wrote without a critical word. But when Intel said they would compete with OLPC on price and features, the OLPC folks got very upset, saying,in effect: how dare they intrude on our market, and our chance to be wonderful PC saviors to the masses?

No accurate figures, speculation puts it at about 10,000 others are far less charitable - Kariyatil

Ahh, well the Indian govt is in business ;) Any private company which is sensible enough will not bother to venture into this quagmire of deceit, corruption and plain stiffling inefficiency.

This is why governments shouldn't be in the business of making electronics.
