Enabling the next billion onto the net!

I was looking around to get a eeePC yesterday and found that they’ve launched a new model the S101 in Singapore. I have not seen it at either Funan or Sim Lim yet. But, that prompted a thought process in that, we now have an excellent way to bring computing using Linux to the masses at next to zero cost – by bundling Mobile Broadband services through telcos, just as how cell phones have reached the ruralest of rural areas. In one swoop, with a not too shabby device with mobile broadband (and perhaps with VoIP (not skype please)), we will begin to bridge the next billion or more people. So, StarHub, SingTel and MobileOne, what are you waiting for?
