But why the iPad? "Because of two reasons. One, we have a parent working for Apple and, two, the iPad2 has the best applications," Lulla said.

Sigh

Now it is iPad2. Next year ipad3 will come out and parents will be asked to spend another Rs 40000+ to upgrade the thing for their kids. In the hand of most kids a tablet will last no more than 1-2 years and parents will be spending Rs 40000 every year or so. Rs 40000 is not a small amount. It is almost the annual per capita income in our country.A laptop or tablet for a college student like an engineering or medical student is understandable but for a 6th grade student it is an overkill. A school should teach a child to be humble but schools such as these are bent upon producing snobs.

this thing is not going to work well here in india because text books are not expensive for students in schools and general colleges. medical students? totally different thing.

the price is the least relevant issue here. these schools have annual fees between 5-8 lacs. the parents of these kids won't give a damn abt the cost of 1 ipad.
