We are definitely aware of the OLPC : One Laptop Per Child Project which features 100 Dollar Laptops and its aim is to bring computer knowledge and Technology atmosphere in the third world countries. But the OLPC project is soon to find a competitor from India which features 10 Dollar Laptops.
The $10 Laptop
Recently the OLPC Project pushed its price per laptop from $175, from $100 and rejecting this offer India’s HDR Ministry claims that it can take this price to as low as $10 which is a topic of great debate so as in whether it is going to be a reality or fiction?
$10 Laptop : a Reality or mere Fiction?
The India Times reports that the manufacturing for the $10 laptop has already been pushed down to app. $50 but the manufacturing of mere $10 laptop still deems to be fiction as no manufacturer has yet agreed to a such low price.
OLPC is no doubt already on the move and it is a matter of time since every child in the third world nations shall have a laptop of his/her own but this $10 Laptop Project by India is going to take a minimum of 2 years for its accomplishment. Till then it remains a mere fiction for all.
