As an attempt to bring technology to the masses, India develops the world's cheapest tablet. This $35 gadget -- which may eventually only cost $10 -- was developed by Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal and has a web browser, PDF reader, office software, media player, multimedia input/output, video conferencing and remote device management capability.

As India develops the world's cheapest tablet, could this cheaper version be as successful as its pricey iPad counterpart?

Implications - Sibal claims the iPad knockoff is an effort to further push interactive education. The cheap and accessible technology is said to work the same way as a normal tablet, promising a strong future emerging from India.
