I’ve written several times about the OLPC (aka $100 laptop) – and have one.
(I like curiouslee’s viewfinder for it!)
There is now a plan in India to create a $10 laptop – which they intend to launch at India’s National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technologies The BBC’s report did note that they might have meant 5,000 rupees ($100), rather than the original 500 rupees ($10), but even that significantly undercuts the OLPC, which has never got near its original target of $100.
India already has the Simputer, though I’ve not heard much about that for quite a long time.
