India's $35 tablet--how low can it go?- CNET Asia


Quote:India on Thursday unveiled a prototype tablet computer that would sell for a mere 1,500 rupees, or $35, with the price possibly dropping even further as R&D efforts continue.

Kapil Sibal, the country's Minister for Human Resource Development, showed off the super-cheap touch-screen device in New Delhi as part of a push to provide high-quality education to students across the country. The tablet also comes with a solar-power option that could make it more feasible for rural areas.

The Linux-based computer at first glance resembles an Apple iPad and features basic functions you'd expect to see in a tablet--a Web browser, multimedia player, PDF reader, Wi-Fi, and video conferencing ability. It has 2GB of RAM (but no hard disk, instead using a memory card) and USB ports and could be available to kids from primary school up to the university level as early as next year.

Device Looks Good on Video

Here’s a short video showcasing the miraculously cheap computing device that’s due to hit the country soon. There’s not much else that’s been disclosed about the device’s specs, but according to the video, we know now that the device will initially not be manufactured in India but will be later on. The demo pieces that were on display didn’t seem to very clearly indicate the kind of UI or OS this yet to be named device would feature, all except one that very clearly showcased an Android OS.

So what can we really expect? It’s still a mystery, but I’m sure things will become a little clearer in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned.
