$35 India Tablet (Laptop) is Real [Video]

As the world was skeptical if the $35 India tablet (laptop) was real – Kapil Sibal, Indian HRD minister himself displayed the product at Gadget guru on NDTV.

You can catch the NDTV interview with Vikram Chandra and Rajiv Makhni, where he confirms that manufacturers can indeed supply $35 tablets if a million tablets are ordered. These would be for direct supply to Indian universities at this subsidized prices for students. Of course retail prices in the market would definitely by higher, Catch the interview on NDTV below.

The 35$ (Rs. 1700+) gadget has 2 Gb RAM, runs on Android platform (which is open source), has 2 USB 2.0 ports, wifi, SD card slot, a TV out and a camera with a cool touch screen. NDTV guys got a hands on view of the $35 India tablet (often publicized as laptop).

Well this seems better than the XO laptops. What are your thoughts?

This seems better than OLPC, but there are several things to consider.
1. Whether it is priced $35 or actually costs as much
2. Overall quality of device
3. Touchscreen (resistive) is likely a pain to work with.
4. Actual market price will be significantly higher so $35 is just eyewash. You’d be lucky to get it for $50, if at all, initially.

Even if it does not retail early, students might sell it off on Ebay to make a good deal.

Come out to the market, I will believe it. Otherwise, promising on prototype will be just non-sense things. We want to see the reality.
