  • The Reality of the Rs.500 'Laptop'

    Premium-Inhalt. A laptop at Rs.500 (US$10), no matter how barebones, sounds like the biggest thing to happen for personal computing. Being developed in India, we must be seething with national pride and a sense of achievement. The only problem is, this 'Rs. 500 laptop' is not really a laptop. Not by a long shot. In a gross misrepresentation of facts, this 'laptop' is actually a device that can store information when connected to a laptop. This device has 2GB of memory that can hold e-books and can connect with the government's e-learning portal, Sahshat (www.sakshat.ac.in). The e-books can then be accessed on a PC or be printed. This looks like a flash drive with a feature to sync to an online portal rather than a standalone computing device. It comes with wired and wireless networking capability though. But you get no display, no keyboard. Probably this is the reason why there were no photos released when this product was 'unveiled'.
