Pocket PC

This BBC article describes a pilot project in Kenya that aims to replace text books with Pocket-PCs or 'e-slates' as they're calling them. They're running a Linux OS - I couldn't find out whether they're using Flash - I'm not sure if the player is available for free use on players like these.

The drawbacks here seem to be with recharging the devices and keeping them from physically breaking. However the whole move towards Pocket PC's seems to be key here. It's a move away from the less sensible idea of issuing each child with a laptop.
