Cheap Tablets

On the evening of the iPad release, MG Siegler wrote about a coming sub $200 Nexus tablet from Google (if you read his blog, some of his writing–language–isn’t proper for educational environments [swearing for shock value]).

His point:

The easiest way to sell something cheaply is to make it with cheap components. And that never seems to translate to a great device.

This is one of the points I tried to make in a post I recently penned (typed) about a question I was asked at a recent technology seminar, which was, “What if someone else comes along in two years with a $100 device that schools adopt instead of the iPad?

So, again, I quote MG Siegler:

The easiest way to sell something cheaply is to make it with cheap components. And that never seems to translate to a great device.
