A total new computer generation is on the verge of exploding with India launching a new computer available at an unbelievable cost of $35 especially for its younger studying generation. The tablet PC as light as 400 grams comes loaded with all the possible normal computer applications. Mr Kapil Sibal India’s Union Human Resource Development Minister unveiled this magical gadget earlier this week in a press conference.
A touch screen device, which is wi-fi enabled, developed by the research teams of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). The PC supports a 256 MB RAM and is powered by a 2-watt system and also has solar cells support as an alternative power. The device has a seven inch diagonal screen and an inbuilt processor which makes it conveniently portable and can be connected to any external keyboard through USB port. There is no hard disk but a memory disc of 2 Gigabyte which can be enhanced up to 32 Gigabyte if required.
This gadget will not only have access to the windows OS but also Linux, giving it much user friendly touch and keeping it low on cost. In order to support high tech education system in the country the government of India has given an extra edge support to this gadget and is looking forward to lower the prices up to $20 and even cheaper in the near future.
