India's $35 laptop is making sound waves everywhere. There have been questions asked about its existence & whether it works or not. So there was a live show on NDTV & Kapil Sibal showed to the world that it works, it really works.
So is it in competition to OLPC, well not sure though, but it will be good to see that in the days to come. Nicholas Negroponte had offered all help to the Indian Govt to use the MIT labs for any research that the team wants to do to create such a laotop - remember this is what he said when he was not convinced that it works! Hope after seeing this, his thoughts changes.
Eventually, if it is something good, useful & available so cheap, we must appreciate the work behind it. Bad news is that it will take some time to be available in the retail market & may not come at $35.
Come on Guys, this is it! India is rocking. Just a few weeks back, we had another Super Computer launched.
