India's US$35 tablet caught up in disputes, less than 10,000 shipped

John Ribeiro | April 17, 2012
India's US$35 tablet has yet to take off, with less than 10,000 units of the device released to the market since its October launch, despite considerable interest from consumers, an executive of maker DataWind said Monday.

The two educational institutions could not be immediately reached for comment.

DataWind still hopes to make money by selling the device to the government at the $43 price, as component prices have since fallen. The Indian government will subsidize the price of the device further to $35 before offering it to students.
