How much is a custom made tablet? Not a problem for Gazprom for the CEO, its money worth it.

Hell NO Boet...

3.7Million Dollars. I will either take a trip to space and back or buy a plant that manufacturers toys and satisfy my ego there with custom made toys.

yeah but i'm finding it hard what materials and features/components it would have to cost that much to make it!

i should also note that reading the article it wasnt a strictly hardware only tender - theres an expectation of some level of software development and integration as well, so that figure is not out of this world considering it probably needs to do some high end business functions/tasks that are not currently available on tablets and the standard desktop tools are not exactly simple either

Maybe! But it would be interesting to get the detailed  list of hardware components. I curious to kno things like what processor is it going to use and memory. What is the casing made of and how is going to handle heat plus the overall thickness of the whole unit including weight.

i suspect the components will just be top spec versions of whats currently out there (or just an iPad) - the big costs here will be the developed software
