A few weeks ago India’s Human Resource Development minister, Mr Kapil Sibal was throwing words around the tubes known as the internet about a planned $35 laptop built for students around the world.
THAT’S going to happen.
Wow, it’s really hard to be sarcastic on the internet.
At least that’s how the world reacted a few weeks ago, but due to a few recent developments, it looks like it may actually happen.
Right now Microsoft and Google are in a war to get their operating system on the device. It currently runs Android but Microsoft wants a copy of Windows CE on there.
There’s also a video of the device in use. The video shows off the operating system, the touch screen and a bunch of it’s features including: Wifi, 3G, a Sim card slot, an SD card slot and more.
Our sarcasm may have been a bit premature.
