India debuts worlds cheapest tablet - 35$ a peice

The tablet, will run on Google's Android platform, with WiFi connectivity for internet access and cloud storage. It will have 256 MB of RAM, a 2GB SD memory card, a 32 GB expandable memory slot and two USB ports. 

The cheapest tablets available globally are at about $99 for an HP TouchPad and $199 for Amazon's Kindle Fire. In India, tablets currently start from $99 for Pepper, a tablet launched last month by Devraj group of companies. The Wespro ePad is available at Rs 7,000.

The so-called $35 tablet being made by Datawind is a brainchild of human resources minister Kapil Sibal and a team of technologists from IIT Rajasthan.

The device is being launched two years after it showed off a $10 computer, which turned out to be little more than a storage device.

When contacted, KK Swamy, deputy MD, TKM, “As part of our policy, we do not comment on our future projects or products.” Fellow Japanese carmaker Honda is using its Fit/Jazz platform to churn out a next-gen product for India.

Auto industry sources say Toyota may follow the Innova model for its small car sourcing from specific low-cost centres and selling the model in Asia and the BRIC markets. The small car may also come with both petrol and diesel powertrains, say sources.

Toyota’s Indian subsidiary, Toyota Kirloskar Motor, is likely to announce its small car project before the end of this year, say sources. The car is being built on a new platform in Toyota’s second plant. This plant is likely to come up in Bangalore with an investment of around Rs 2,000 crore.

“We plan to make an announcement regarding the small car in the next two months,” sources said. Toyota’s global small car is being designed in Japan. “The new car is being built on a new platform and that is the reason we have taken more time than was expected,” said Toyota Kirloskar Motor MD Atsushi Toyoshima.
