Laptops for $10 – Indian Government does it again

Few days back, Indian govt. announced $10 laptop, but realized the typo and immediately hiked the price to $100. The story is back again!

Govt., in partnership with IIT M and IISC is again claiming to have developed a $10 laptop which will be available in 6 months.

“The computer will be a small equipment with expandable memory, LAN and Wi-Fi facilities. The government will also produce e-content on every subject which will be made available free of cost.

..lot of testing has to be done to ensure that the technology works properly. Once the testing is over, the computers will be made available on commercial basis. The target is to make it available in six months time,” – source

Leaving all the hype, I’d like to hear from any of the IITM/IISC friends on feasibility of this $10 laptop. Is this for real?
