The PIC is part of a marketing campaign called 50x15 "affordable
Internet access and computing for 50 percent of the world population by
the year 2015"
We've been approached at times to design similar platforms for the 3rd

enough power to run basic apps (word processing, browser, MPEG etc.) and
is real low cost <$100 and is as idiot proof as possible.
