Specification Comparison of Tablets in India :
So I guess you had figured out now what the device is for. Its not for entertainment and nor for playing games but a device which will give a computer to every person in India, right from Vegetable shopkeepers to a Taxi Driver to manage his stuff done if at all required.
Even if I forget everything, this device can get school kids who live in rural area a power to read and get to know the world outside if this device can be regularly updated with new books and offline Wikipedia. Probably somebody can run a service updating these devices with new stuff available to children.
