India is building a 20$ laptop

Yes it is true!!! Forget OLPC, forget netbooks. Here comes the 20$ laptop from India.

It is much better than the OLPC XO that Negroponte wanted to reportedly charge the Indian government more than 2 years ago. This offer was rejected by officials with a promise to young Indians to do it better and for less. According to some reports (there is not anything official), the laptop will feature 2GB of memory, WiFi, fixed Ethernet, expandable memory, and consume just 2 watts of power.The Devil’s in the details, they say, but with any luck, India will be swimming in cheap silicon within the next 6 months if the project can keep to schedule… that’s a big IF.
