India ahead with $10 notebook

Posted on: January 31, 2009

Indian government’s plans for the sale of a $10 notebook. The computer was jointly developed by the Indian Institute of Science and Indian Institute of Technology, and is a part of a plan dubbed the National Mission on Education.

Before you have visions of the world’s largest democracy handing out notebooks priced cheaper than an iTunes album all willy-nilly, the notebook will be available exclusively for students. Current specifications call for Wi-Fi and/or Ethernet connections, expandable memory, and power consumption of just 2W.
