HTC chairwoman donates 100,000 "Flyer" tablets in Southeast Asia

At the World Bank open forum “Equal Futures Partnership: From Promise to Progress” in Washington, HTC Chairwoman, Cher Wang, boldly declared that she will donate 100,000 tablets to young women in Southeast Asia. Wang says that the tablets will be used to support the education of women as well as promote gender equality in the region.

The tablets to be distributed are HTC’s Flyer tablet. Released in May 2011, the Flyer runs on Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and is topped with HTC Sense UI. The tablet has a 7-inch 600 x 1024 resolution display and has a single-cor 1.5GHz Snapdragon S2 processor. With its 16/32GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, and the featured note-taking app HTC Scribe, the tablet is particularly useful in schools. 

It’s worth noting that the HTC Chairwoman is well known for her advocacy of women’s rights and acts of philantrophy. In 2011, Chairwoman Wang donated a total of $28.1 million to found the Guizhou Forerunner College. The educational institution provides free to low cost tertiary education for low-income families in the country. Chairwoman Wang had also previously donated 6,000 tablets to 60 schools in Taipei back in August of 2012. The co-founder of HTC ranked number 56 on Forbes’ list of most powerful women in August last year.
