India is since a while on the quest for ultra-cheap computers. In 2009 a $10 laptop made the news. Today Indian Minister Kapil Sibal unveiled a $35 Tablet computer.
The goal for the 7-inch Linux powered Tablet is also to reach a price of $10. The aim of the super low cost Tablet is to equip Indian students with it.

The minister said that this Tablet computer is still in development state, but they achieved the milestone that all hardware components including the touchscreen have accumulative cost of $35. Via The Hindu.

The $35 hardware cost actually sounds reasonable if you consider the Android Tablet deal we featured earlier today. This 7-inch Internet Tablet with Google Android 1.7 sells for around $120.
