105 tablet computers ready for delivery

The Nation

BANGKOK: -- The first few tablet computers for school children is ready for official delivery today, the Office of Basic Education Commission (Obec) said in a statement yesterday.

A ceremony will be held at 1.30pm today at Government House, where 105 units will be delivered to teachers and students. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra will be at hand to provide tutorials.

The units will be delivered to education offices in the Regional Office 1 grouping in each province alphabetically, followed by the Regional Office 2 grouping and so on once Shen Zhen Scope Scientific Development delivers the first lot of 400,000 units.

The first lot of devices will be delivered 60 days after the contract was signed on May 10, followed by 600,000 units 30 days later. There are some 183 education offices across the country.

A source said the first lot had been restricted to 400,000 units, because the first 2,000 units delivered to the Education Ministry did not pass the specifications.

However, the source said weaker batteries should not affect the tablets' efficiency and the 2,000 should not fail the overall test. "Once the first 2,000 units pass the tests, production of the 400,000 units would begin," he added.

Why can't they just install a screen plus projector/PC (not made in China) in each classroom and things would be fine.

What about the schools that are still without electricity? Not even talking about WiFi. Shouldn't that have priority? I'm confused........wub.png

Guess most teachers involved are already sick and tired of that BS......wink.png

How did the first 2000 units fail the checks when tpday they are delivering the first 105 units? I hope there is a maths program on the tablet as they need to recalculate the delivery schedule. I have just informed my daughter she is likely to get hers when she is 87. I have still never worked out why such a valuable project was not given to a Thai company.

I hope these tablets are coming with a nice sturdy case. My kids would have destroyed our ipad 10 times over already had it not been for the case. I guess the young school kids will never drop them though will they.

It's interesting that they restricted the first batch to 400,000 because the first lot didn't pass BEFORE they received the 2,000 for testing.

Is it me or is it every time I read an article about these tablets the numbers quoted seem to get smaller everytime?

Not to worry they have delivered 105 today, 30 days after contract signing. Now they have 30 days left to deliver 400 000, I am sure it will be a piece of pi** whistling.gif Remember this is after all Miracle Thailand.

Not having to repeat what's been said above, but if it takes 30 days to deliver 105 working units, how they plan to do 400 000 more in the same time frame of 30 days ?

Funny how Yingluck has the time to go and hand out tablets but not the time to go read one of the most urgent (according to PTP) bill or attend Parliament.
