  1. India's $35 academic tablet has been delayed following complications with the device's vendor. HCL Infosystems won a manufacturing contract last year, but it failed to get an Rs 60 crore ($13 million) bank guarantee, which protects the government in case the vendor doesn't deliver the project.

    For $35 I'd buy it just to see what it was like. Think about it guys, even if it's slow as hell, it's still cheaper than a lot of E-readers.

    I think $35 for a tablet device makes it above all criticism. THIRTY FIVE DOLLARS!!!
     
  7. just buy your people food than giving them laptops. $35 laptops wont give them satisfaction. It will add only to their lists of liabilities like cars, loans and wife.
     
  8. India has lots of bureaucratic *****s who think that they can solve all problems.. Corporates are ill.. and markets dont work.. They need to be publicly reprimanded.. I am sure if India improves the infrastructure, allows manufacturing to happen, clean up some corruption, we can see a $30 tablet also but nothing.. if that does not happen.
