Intel has developed a device called the studybook, which is a tablet with a 7-inch touchscreen enclosed in rugged plastic. Even though Intel designed the device, but they expect it to be branded, customized, and sold by hardware companies to reach students in third world countries. Pricing will be determined by their partners, but it is expected to cost less than $200. The software becomes a challenge because they need custom-tailored educational software. “They want it in their local language and with their local content,” stated Kapil Wadhera, general manager of Intel’s education market platforms group. The studybook uses an Intel chip called Atom and it will support Google Android.
