Computer for Rs.1500

Computer for Rs.1500

India has launched a low cost access-cum-computing device for learners and teachers which would be made available through educational institutions by 2011.

“The price of the device is expected to be around $35 (Rs. 1,500), gradually dropping down to $20 and ultimately $10 per piece,” Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal said, while unveiling the device here.

Since this effort of continuous reduction in price and enhancement in capabilities would require a constant endeavour for research and development, Indian Institutes of Technology and other technical institutions are setting up research teams to cover a wide range of issues in achieving the ultimate goal in terms of price and quality, the Minister said.

Low-cost computer features:
1.        Internet browsing with flash plug-in.
2.        Multimedia Content Viewer.
3.        Searchable PDF reader.
4.        Media player capable.
5.        Embedded webcam.
6.        Wireless communication for audio/video input and output.
7.        Support for video web conferencing facility.
8.        Remote device management capability.
9.        Cloud computing option.
10.    Possibility of installing suitable firmware up gradation.
