The Vodacom Webbook is a success
In October 2011, Vodacom launched the Ubuntu-powered Webbook designed to spread Internet access and mobility in South Africa.
Two months later, according to Canonical, the Webbook is a success, available in 1200 stores in South Africa and in "the coming weeks is expected to be one of the ‘must have’ Christmas gifts for this year".
Obviously this success is not by chance, but based on Ubuntu's worldwide acknowledge features: open-source office suite LibreOffice, enhanced support for numerous printers, cameras, various peripherals, rock-solid security and much more.
