On last Monday, a London company named Datawind has announced that it has plans to sell a cheap $38 tablet in the U.S. through as-yet it is unnamed online and the brick-and-mortar retailers earlier in the next year.
This London-based firm has got some plans to sell their three models in the United States, which are ranging in price from about $38 to as much as $149 with some varying specs and their different capabilities.
The Datawind’s CEO, Mr. Suneet Singh has said that their goal is the same as they have always been to– it is to bring the least expensive computers as possible to the schools and to the low-income communities.
He added that affordability should not ever be the reason people can not even get on the Internet. Datawind wants to specifically reach a customer base that right now is not on the Internet and technology. And according to the Pew Research Center, only 15% of American adults do not use the Internet facility.
Mr. Tuli said that he wants to sell these devices, but he also wants it to reach the children who have limited access to the World Wide Web, or no connectivity at all at their home.
