This absolutely a huge opportunity for SL. Here in Nepal, private
schools frequently ask how they can get laptops for their school and if
we can put the E-Paath content on it.

Additionally, private individuals always ask how they can get X # of
XO's for a random school.

Before I never knew what to tell them because it was and is very
difficult to order XO's in small lots.

But now i will direct them to devices like the EduBook.

Also, devices assembled in-country have an instant political
constituency to lobby for them, the manufacturers who want the contract
to assemble. Assembling in-country also means u will more likely have
trained people who can fix them later.
