India Plans Tablet PC: At $35

The completely open-source tablet is being designed to target students. Running on Linux, the Indian government hopes to mass produce the iPad lookalike in the hope of bringing such technology to the masses.

“This is our answer to MIT’s $100 computer,” says Kapil Sibal (shown above)

The device is capable of most common functions including even video conferencing. Plans to subsidize the cost to as low as $10 are also being considered.
