Kapil Sibal, India’s Human Resource Development Minister, has recently unveiled a $35 tablet with specs including 2GB of memory, Wi-Fi connectivity, PDF and Flash support, and is reported to run “linux”.
The tablet was developed by Bangalore’s Indian Institute of Science(IISC) and four Indian Institute of technology(IITs) in India.
the Indian government plans to subsidize their sale to students such that they’ll cost only $20. The goal is to have them selling for as little as $10 in the future.
If the project actually works out, it would be a brilliant addition in the tools to fight poverty for not just India but all the developing nations.
