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

HTC's chairwoman is giving away 100,000 HTC Flyer tablets to women in Southest Asia. By doing so, the spirited Cher Wang hopes to encourage more women to be more technology-savvy so as to help achieve gender equality, not only in Southeast Asia, but in other regions as well.

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.

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.
