Full hardware specs haven't been shared yet so we don't know what kind of muscle is under the hood, but various news outfits say the nameless device has a touchscreen.

A bit back, India drummed up anticipation over a $10 educational laptop in response to the OLPC project. As it turned out, the device was a display-less, keyboard-less brick that basically amounted to networked storage. A spokesperson said the $35 tablet is feasible because of falling hardware costs, open source software, and an intelligent design, but we'll believe it when we see it.
