Announced almost a year ago in July 2010, the Indian tablet that promised to break all price barriers has suffered multiple delays. Finally after many reassurances, Kapil Sibal today announced that the tablet will indeed be graspable this October. The tablet runs on Google Android, version still unconfirmed — but we’re almost certain that it won’t be shiny new Gingerbread, probably it’ll be a scaled-up avatar of Froyo, it comes shipped with 2GB RAM, a front-facing camera, 32GB hard drive, Wi-Fi, USB ports and some thrown in (free) apps. The Indian government further plans to offer the tablet to students at a subsidized price of $20, eventually selling them for as little as $10 in the future. This project is a collaborative effort of the Indian Institute of Science (IIS) and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) — Kharagpur, Mumbai & Madras. Do let us know what you feel about this tablet and leave some comments below.
