Android tablets in Asia

Android tablets are popular in China and India has the Aakash tablet, but something that has not got a lot of press outside of Thailand yet is that the Thai government has signed a contract for 900,000 Android 7 inch tablets sourced from Shenzen Scope Scientific in China, with the possibility of a further 700,000 higher spec devices for high school students.

The Thai government is paying around $81 a unit.
