TechCrunch Cheapo Tablet PC
Apparently, TechCrunch has created their own version of a prototype tablet PC.
Their goal: To make something under $200 that can browse the internet, play flash videos without hiccups and could perform like any other basic PCs out in the market.
Of course, they have in fact come out with something called the CrunchPad whereby it comes equipped with the following specifications:
12 inch touchscreen
4GB flash memory
My thoughts: Personally, I believe that the CrunchPad is something really unique and that if you talk about mass distributing as a learning device in schools – it would definitely help students study better via technology. No more text books and assignments can be submitted via the CrunchPad. On the other hand, it doesn’t fold like a normal netbook or notebooks – making it rather durable and you can use it without worrying breaking some of the parts inside.
This is definitely a great tablet PC – I hope that for those who are in the education line, would seriously consider incorporating this technology as part of their education.
