India Unveils $35 Tablet Computer That Looks Like iPad

In Technology on July 24, 2010 at 3:07 am

The technology whizzes in India have come up with a new, low-cost tech toy: a $35 computer that looks like an iPad.

As this AP story notes, India is already known for its ability to crank out cheap products and services — like the $2,127 Nano car or open-heart surgery for just $2,000.

Now comes along India’s new Linux operating-based system computer. It’s a tablet that lets you do word processing functions, video conferencing and even web surfing.

If India’s government can find a manufacturer for this ultra cheap computer, it hopes to bring it to market in 2011 and target students as primary buyers.
