Personally, I think its great they are getting access to low cost communication options. However, shouldnt companies like Google be helping these communities in Africa, by, I dunno, wells, irrigation, agriculture, so that they can have FOOD and WATER, and education, before throwing tablets at them. Soon enough, Africa will be flooded with cellphones and tablets, and people trying to eat them because they are starving to death. What's this world come to?
