World's Cheapest Laptop @ $35 - The Indian iPad

The Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) announced the launch of $35 laptops; cheapest in the world.

The Linux based device will also have provisions for running on solar power besides the usual battery operated systems. A student at VIT, Vellore came up with a mother board design, and the PCB of the same was later fabricated in IIT, Kanpur. The Rs 1,700/$35 computing device is expected to first target hit higher education institutions starting 2011.


  • 5/7/9 inch touch screen gadget
  • Internet browsers
  • PDF reader
  • Open Office
  • Touchscreen
  • Remote device management capability
  • Multimedia input-output interface option

Is this India’s answer to the iPad even though the customer target varies?
