Is this a trick question?
The very same 3rd worlders who're getting laptops are in an ideal situation to translate material on an as-needed basis. 99 out of 100 of them don't read English? Big deal. I don't know USB protocols, but since I use the same Internet as Greg KH, I don't need to.
Besides, it won't be books from publishers. It'll be wikipedia, google, ibiblio, and the like.
