					July 23 Indian researchers have demonstrated a price of only $ 35 of the "world's
cheapest laptop." It is reported that this touch screen computer with potential
customers for the students, the computer system built Linux-based word processor,
Web browser, PDF reader and video conferencing capabilities, and can continue to
expand as needed.
 India's Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal said the Linux based
computing device was expected to be introduced to higher education institutions from
2011 but the aim was to drop the price further to $20 and ultimately to $10.
 Three models are planned, with touchscreens of 5 inches, 7 inches, and 9 inches.
They will have full WiFi, a USB port, and 2GB of onboard storage, which is pretty
reasonable for the price. Full internet browsing, with the ability to play Youtube
videos, is also promised.
 While Indian university students—particularly ones in engineering—have access to
advanced computers in campus tech labs, few students have their own personal
computers. The Indian government’s initiative hopes to change this with a tablet that
impresses with its price—and its feature list. Some are logical choices—like Google
Android Ipad Tablet PC—and others are actually somewhat surprising.
 "The solutions for tomorrow will emerge from India.
 Sibal said the government may subsidise 50 per cent of the price for students.
 Mr. Sibal expressed that about over one-third of the 25,000 colleges and universities
across the country are now connected to the broadband connection and various online
and video-streaming courses are now available for students with many more are being
developed.
 At the time of the initial announcement the Indian government had not yet found a
manufacturer, leading some to fear that the estimated price was idle fancy. Now,
however, it has teamed up with HCL Technologies, a date is set and the price is as it
was first advertised, with the possibility of it being lowered to as little as $10 if
competition allows.
