The board committee looking after the government's tablet computer scheme will set up a panel to outline its terms of reference for an electronic auction to buy 1.8 million tablets. 

The tablets will be given to Prathom 1 (Grade 1) and Mathayom 1 (Grade 7) students nationwide next term as part of the government's "one tablet per child policy".

The devices will cost about 5 billion baht in total, said Chinnapat Bhumirat, secretary-general of the Office of the Basic Education Commission (Obec), who is also a member of the committee.
