The Indian project to build an ultra-low cost computer has apparently succeeded. The Indian government project started out in 2009 with the idea of building a $10 laptop. Last year they changed plans to build a $35 Tablet. Now Times of India (via Engadget) reports that the Sakshat tablet is ready and ships end of month to the IIT Rajasthan.

The $35 Tablet has a 7-inch touchscreen, 32GB HDD, 2GB RAM, Wi-Fi, USB and camera for video conferencing. On the tablet some kind of Linux runs that enables users to operate Open Office, SciLab and browser the web. The first batch of the Sakshat is actually selling for $50. The Indian government plans to subsidize the tablet though with 50% bringing the price down to $25.
