The Indian government has revealed its super-super-low-priced tablet computer, which it says it’ll start selling to students this year – for $US35. It’s a bit bulky, but for $US35 you can’t really whine about the bezel size.
Indian authorities expect to be able to make and sell the chunky computer for $US35 at first, before economies of scale bring that down to $US20, and eventually $US10. But it won’t be a stripped-down, feature-light machine – the impressive hardware spec includes support for video conferencing, PDF and multimedia compatibility, internet access (with Flash!) and much more.
