The media in India is reporting that $10 Laptop in unveiled today, but i couldn’t find a picture of the same. I was not sure whether this is real of some fake news, building a $10 Laptop is not an easy task.
The specs according to media reports is, it features 2GB RAM, Wi-Fi and Ethernet and will consume just 2W of power. It is called Sakshat and will go for production in six months.
The $10 Laptop reportedly costs $20 not $10 at launch, but the officials are hoping that the price will come down to 10 dollars with mass production.
The $10 Sakshat Laptop is real or just politics we don’t know yet, but according to Rediff article they have demonstrated (how) the Laptop but i couldn’t find a single photo on the net.
S K Sinha, joint secretary in the ministry for education, giving a demonstration of the device which is smaller than the normal laptop, said that it will need some more fine-tuning. He said the laptop is expected to reach the market in about six months.
