$35 Tablet from Indian Government: Cheapest Tablet? [Specs & Video]

26 July 2010 By Varun


This tablet from Indian government has been in the news for quite some time now. It started as the cheapest tablet for students, and at that time it was said to cost just $10. But gradually the price of this tablet increased, and reached up to $35, but still its very cheap compared to other tablets in the market.

Indian government has not officially announced all the features of this “magically cheap” tablet, but here are some of the known features & specs:

  • 7 inch Touchscreen Resistive display with 800×480 resolution
  • 2GB RAM
  • Wi-Fi b/g
  • Usb port
  • Linux OS
  • Webcam
  • Cloud Computing
  • Adobe Flash support
  • Remote device management

There are 8,500 colleges which already signed up for this tablet, and expect some more to come. Indian government can reduce its prices further, if this thing went into mass production.

Expected Release Date of India’s Tablet
