Huawei-MediaPad-10-FHD1
It’s no secret that Android tablet sales have lagged far behind Apple’s iPad. The reason? Price and user experience. Some 10-inch Android tablets cost as much as an iPad, and some of them are painfully slow when it comes to gaming and multitasking. Apparently, Huawei’s upcoming quad-core tablet MediaPad 10 FHD would be something different. It will be powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM, and it will be available for sale in late August for less than $500.

  University Students Forced To Take Internship at Foxconn, Otherwise Failed!

June 19, 2012 | by:    | Apple Foxconn's Hell Factory |

Foxconn has partnered with an university in China to provide a summer internship for the university students to earn some work experiences (assembling iPhones and iPads?). But the stupidest thing is this internship program is a compulsory curriculum. Students would NOT be permitted to graduate if they don’t participate the work experience.

12307083_828869
Xi’an Technological University North Institute of Information Engineering has around 2,000 students. Many students said they cannot accept of what the school has arranged for them, while a small portion of them said they could understand the school’s arragement. According to a student:

“The internship in Foxconn as if a military training.”

On the other hand, the vice president of Xi’an Technological University said, the internship is the practical experience is part of their curriculum, the goal of arranging such internship for the students is to allow them to understand what they really want to be, since many students usually felt pressure by their parents into choosing a particular degree course or institution.

Reportedly, students who enrolled in 2010 must attend to the work experience in Foxconn. Moreover, students studying in courses unrelated to technology such as arts and social sciences, were also told to take part. The two-months work experience is equal to six credits. The school also said students with disabilites can apply for credit exemption.

Each student will be given a monthly salary of 1,550 yuan (US$243). However, they actually receive only about 705 yuan (US$118) per month after deducting expenses for travel, daily necessities, food and accommodation. According to some students, if they have other fees like phone bills to pay off, then all their wages that earned from the internship will be nothing. Students who completed the internship said they just learned simple and routine tasks such as trimming edges from a mobile phone, some tasks that even junior high school student could handle.

The school claimed they do not receive any benefits from Foxconn, and Foxconn is the only partner that they have found so far with safe working environment and sufficient vacancies. The school may also provide internships with other companies in the future. It is unreasonable to force students to take part by threatening to withhold their degree. If the content of the internship does not match the course, students could become cheap labors.
