Indian Manufacturer Comes Out With $35 Tablet

July 23, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Recently we’ve been seeing all sorts of shady-looking tablets for low prices, and there hasn’t been one that manages to combine a good price tag with formidable qualities. However, India has just revealed a new tablet design which looks really sleek, and costs just $35. The announcement was made by the Human Resource Development Minister of India, Kapil Sibal.

The $35 price isn’t even a ballpark figure – that’ll be the device’s exact retail cost when it comes out. Its specs are 2 GB of RAM, it runs Linux as an operating system, and supports Wi-Fi connectivity. It can also read PDF documents and actually plays YouTube without any problem.

Additionally, the government has made some plans to help its students by subsidizing them, and they’ll be able to get the new tablet for just $20. Prices are expected to drop rapidly as well, and the tablet’s designers are hoping to sell it for just $10 at some point. Let’s just hope it doesn’t turn out like certain other $10 electronics coming from India.
