    All progress begins with a dream......Good luck to them and I hope it's successful.
    It won't be replacing my iPad though.

    The thought of Linux apps made me shudder. Tarballs ftw.

    Before anyone gets too excited.

    I think it is a great idea that the world can produce a $35 tablet.

    It will not compete with an iPad. Apple pays about a $100 for the screen alone in the iPad. Does that mean anything to you?

    Here is a simple test. Lay the iPad flat on a table and walk around it. Did you notice you can view the screen everywhere you go from directly above it to off to the other side of the room?

    Try that with just about any laptop or other tablet. Can you see the amazing difference? That is Apple's attention to quality where it matters.
    That is why people buy Apple and swear by it than all that electronic crap that pretends to do the same thing.

    funny, I rem posting some while back that some company from China will make tablets for $75.00 few years down the road, but never did I imagine to see this now and only 35 bucks..

    how do they do it? I mean the processor alone has to be like 100 dollars? And the screen another 100!

    man, if this is true Im gonna buy 10 of them, have one in the basement, one in the car, one in the dog house- for my dog even, one in the...well, you get the idea, I 'll have one everywhere!!!

    I think the real bonus is that cheap devices like this will allow people in the developing world access to the Internet and all its benefits regarding education.

    ...alternatively, we may just get hit with another wave of "Helo sirs, I have been requested to in for you that my client has been allocated $20 million dollars but can only get it If you send me your bank details" emails

    Yay another Indian device that will never see more than prototype phase.

    Remember, you get what you pay for.

    Yea, sure you get what you pay for. But at that price you can certainly get a lot of them lol So what if they each only last even only 6-9 months? For less than the cost of a tank of gas you can just buy another one. More power to them. Not everyone can come up with the money for a well built device.
    At least THEY don't have the word 'pad' in their name lol

    AllGo Tablet

    Hi,
    I had designed this sytem. I am presently in UK. The processor is an embedded one with all the necessary features for a basic computer system and we had calculated this $35 for a 100k volume with a profit of $5 per product. It included all the cost (Design/CAD cost in this volume become approx. zero, BOM cost was $20, Fab cost less than $0.2 when the PCB size itself is 2.2"x2.2").
    Any reply !
