hTC Tablet For Rs.1500

The 'Sakshat' Tablet manufactured by hTC is launched by Indian HRD ministry and will be priced for only Rs.1500. Kapil Sibal, the Minister of Human Resource Development, has reaffirmed that it would be priced at Rs.1500 and that the price would only go lower in the future.

The key features of this India-based tablet include:

  • 2GB of RAM
  • web-conferencing
  • PDF reader unzip
  • WiFi
  • camera
  • USB connectivity

The Android based Sakshat is surprisingly feature packed for its price. Although its target audience would be university and college students, many people are already wondering about the possibility of such a device going into mass production. We think the Sakshat has the ability to bring computing to a whole new section of users who until now could only dream of going online or compute.

With over 8,500 colleges from all parts of country already having expressed interest in getting themselves the Sakshat, looks like this has all the ingredients to become a rare Indian Government success story.
