A friend of mine received RM5 million free R&D fund from the MavCap for e-book project a few years ago. The targeted price range for made-in-Malaysia e-book is like high-end laptop PC. The company expects BN government via bumi crony connection to buy their products as a free gift for all students in Malaysia.

That is a billion business if the plan is worked out!

I foresee the project will fail before a prototype is delivered. Yes, the e-book project was dead on the drawing board.

We Malaysian taxpayers footed RM5 million bill from the MavCap!

RM200 tablet computer sounds more reasonable for our primary school students.

Why India can do it by coming out USD60 gadget? Because cheapest is NOT the option in the Bolehland.
