The Indian government’s bold announcement of $35 or INR 1500 tablet computers for students will result in major effects (comparable to what the nano car did for the automobile sector). It is a great example of academia and industry collaborating and where the top institutes in the country, such as the Indian Institute of Technology and the Indian Institution of Science, are driving a highly interesting undertaking. The aim is to provide further subsidies and offer even cheaper computing devices. However, the question remains, as Prof. Prem Kalra, Head of IIT-Rajasthan put it: We may have connected millions or rather billions of transistors, but have we truly connected millions of people!
