Svyaznoy, for example, reports that tablet sales in Russia grew by almost 60% in the first quarter of this year (compared with sales in January-March 2013).

How different are tablets today and what can they be in the very near future? Eco-friendly and affordable The usual-looking tablet was created by Michael Castor based on the budget mini-computer Raspberry Pi Model B. This is a single-board computer with an ARM processor with a clock frequency of 700 MHz. Continue reading
