Specs for the $35 TABLET
The 7-inch touchscreen tablet will come with inbuilt keyboard, video conferencing facility, multimedia content, Wi-Fi, USB port, 32GB hard drive and 2GB RAM. The tablet will support Open Office, SciLab and Internet browsing.
The low cost tablet was full of controversies, ever since it was announced back in July last year. It was supposed to be launched by January 2011, but was met with lot of hurdles in its way. HCL, which had initially won the tender for producing 1 million units of Sakshat was booted out, which in turn delayed the launch by 6 more months.
The tablet is planned to cost Rs 2,200. In INR but reports claim that the government later plans to further subsidise the cost by 50 per cent which means the device may cost somewhere around Rs 1,100.
