Indian government has planned to provide laptops at Rs 1000 to professional-science programme students.
The government has allocated Rs 5000 Crore for this project.
There was also a news that BSNL is planning to provide free internet service (at 2 MBps!!!) for all citizens... Well India seems to be on its way to be a information super power!!
- Internet Browsing (Yes.. This is mainly meant for browsing internetonly)
- Plays audio and video.
- 256MB memory (RAM or HDD ??)
- OS should be some flavour of Linux
I guess this might look something like this... Below is one of the cheap laptops given to African Students.
