Probably a better approach for GoI would have been to give away this console/tablet + basic phone connection for free.

And then open it up for people to create and add basic educational content, probably even let people evolve it to let people connect with each other and other dead simple activities.

Few thoughts that came to my mind. This is definitely a good initiative.
