$50 tablet an effective educational tool

An initial year-long study by Rice University (from the US ) and Nanyang Technological University (from Singapore) in India has shown that the I-Slate is an effective educational tool. Currently costing $50, the creators of the single-purpose tablet aim to bring costs down to $30 and make the tablet solar-powered.  This would allow its use by primary school children in places with no electricity, helping increase literacy rates and social upliftment.
