Here's a truly cool device that's designed to bring the benefits of computing to the third-world: Simputer.

The Simputer is a low cost portable alternative to PCs, by which the benefits of IT can reach the common man.

It has a special role in the third world because it ensures that illiteracy is no longer a barrier to handling a computer.

The key to bridging the digital divide is to have shared devices that permit truly simple and natural user interfaces based on sight, touch and audio.

The first retail model is the Amida Simputer, and the tour makes it look like a pretty powerful device. I emailed a sales representative to get a price quote.
