Kytabu is a texbook subscription application on a low cost tablet that allows users to rent books on an hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and annual timeline on a mobile platform payment plan. Kytabu allows primary and high school students in Kenya to access all the textbooks in the Kenyan Education Curriculum as digital learning material without having to download them on a broadband network. The books all come pre-installed in the subsidized tablet that they can then use to lease the books directly from the tablet, without a mobile network gateway. The entire transaction is done on the tablet. Our target cost of the tablet is Ksh 1000.
