Cheapest Tablet in the world

The cheapest  tablet in the world with an estimated cost of only $ 35, was introduced in India by the Minister of Human Resource Development, Kapil Sibal.

This is a prototype developed by researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology and Indian Institute of Science, and was designed exclusively for student use. While the government is still in talks to see which manufacturer will be in charge of its production in bulk, and have decided that you want ready to deploy in schools over the next year, starting at an early stage by universities, then high school and finally primary education.

Apparently, this is a laptop with no physical keyboard, with a seven-inch touch screen, a weight of 1.5 kg and can run on solar power. It has browser, built-in webcam, hard drive and would not be suitable for video conferencing and multimedia content. The operating system would be Linux, PDF reader and would come with Open Office. As discussed, it would be quite simple in design but engineered to meet basic needs of students. Also, contemplate the possibility of inclusion of other components as the particular needs of each user. It hopes to further reduce its price and cost as much in the future, to no more than $ 10.
