India Targeting To Introduce 10 $ Laptops..

Mon Feb 02, 2009 3:42 pm

..after the project to develop 100 $ laptops was declared a flop-too expensive for the majority of third world residents.
How precicely that 10 $ Laptop will work out is still a mistery..but knowing Indian entrepreneurship very well myself,I have no doubts they will come up with a killer product.

Back When I was studying in India, I didn't even get a scientific calculator for that money.
A laptop cheaper than a calculator? I don't get it.
May be 100 bucks seem realistic in India.

And 10" by 5" for "megabytes of data," costing $30? I've got a 2G flash drive hanging on my keychain that I could get for less than that.

Yes, but I think you failed to notice that that unlike the internet, this device can display that information that has already been stored..
