Malaysian company debuts first local tablet, 1Malaysia Pad. Yay or nay?

Malaysian company debuts first local tablet, 1Malaysia Pad. Yay or nay?

“I seriously doubt a cheap tablet is going to help to boost IT literacy among Malaysians, especially the rural poor. After all, being priced at RM999 (66% of the first generation Samsung Galaxy Tab if my memory serve me right), the rural poor must be able afford it together with a bundle broadband package to reap the complete benefits. But wait, isn’t the 1Malaysia Pad supposed to be a private business venture? As a private business venture, I’d probably say “nice try, good luck”. But if my assumption that it’s meant to be a national initiative (read: government) towards something, I really can’t understand what’s the logic and big goal that they are trying to achieve other than just happily slapping the 1Malaysia slogan on everything they can see.”
