North Korea praises state-controlled tablet success, don't expect it'd connect to the Internet
We do know the screen size and also the weight which is 0.66 pounds or 300 grams, and the battery life of 5 hours. It’s mostly used in schools and with young students, but it comes with a lot of limitations.
For starters, there’s no Internet connectivity. At all. But the device is full packed with party videos (Communist party, not that other type of parties) and Kim Jong-un glorifying content.
The operating system powering this is likely a version of Linux developed by North Korea and called Red Star, but this is more of a guess than a fact. We don’t know the price, but you shouldn’t even ask - there’s no way you can get this device except going to North Korea. Which you also likely can’t do.

North Korea is one messed up country. I bet the tablet is in the same class as those cheep $79 Android tablets that barely work.

This teaches children math like- "If our glorious people's army shoots down 5 american scum dogs out of 14 man platoon, how many dirty imperialist demons will remain?"
What's the over/under for years of hard labor if a student breaks one of these things?
Let's not forget history- This one doesn't use alot of memory. Who created the world? Glorious leader. Who invented electricity? Glorious leader. Who invented the car? Glorious leader...
