"Engadget reports that India has just awarded the manufacturing contract to HCL Technologies. The first shipment will supposedly only contain the 7-inch model and is set to arrive on January 10. It's unclear if the $35 price has stuck or whether India's been successful in plans to eventually drive the price down to $10 with the help of large orders and government subsidies."

"HCL Technologies plans to initially produce 100,000 units. Among the key features of this India-based tablet include 2GB of RAM, web-conferencing, PDF reader unzip, WiFi, camera and USB connectivity.

The Sakshat tablet will be available in an array of screen sizes. It will come out in 5, 7 and 9 screen sizes.""

At $35 or even $50 they could export these to the US, Australia, Europe, Canada, Japan, and several other countries at a profit and use the extra money to subsidize the program. I'd much rather have a low-power, really low-cost tablet that I can treat as practically expendable than to drop $500 or more on something that is just as expensive as an entry-level real laptop.

Yes, I know "Europe" isn't a single country. It does consist of many countries that would be a suitable market, though. That's how I meant the mention above.
