India: Sakshat, The $10 Laptop

Gaurav Mishra at Gaurovonomics discusses about the recently unveiled Sakshat, the $10 laptop in India.


  • That picture at in dot com is NOT the $0 Indian laptop. That picture is something totally different costing like $300 made by a company called Milead or something.

    Anyways, why would you have a bunch of model bimbos showing off laptops for children’s education.

    In fact, there are no pictures of the Indian $0 laptop. I’m guessing it may be a pure bunch of hoax, vapourware that about 500 lazy blog writers just copied from one another without even stopping up to think for one second if this story about a $10 Indian laptop was joke.

  • This report was first published in a regional news paper DNA Mumbai edition and thats from where all got excited about a good news that people have been longing for. More over, its not $0 laptop, its a $10 educational computer that would help students see practiacls and experiments, share education realted content over the Internet.

  • Its absolutely, not a joke considering that an big publication like DNA had a story on this one.

  • Gunjan

    There was a feature on CNN-IBN too – primetime…
