Still taking the tablets
Thailand plans to distribute about 1.7 million tablet computers to school students and teachers this year. They will be given to both primary and middle-school students, with 54,000 tablets going to teachers. The devices remain the property of the schools for three years, during which time the students can take them home daily, after which the students own them. 850,000 tablets were distributed last year and a further seven million are planned for next year. There will be an on-line tender for tablet suppliers.
