The 10-dollar laptop: Will it be a reality?

If reports are to be believed, the 10-dollar (500 rupees) laptop will be unleashed by Government of India on Tuesday (Feb 3rd). The buzz is it will be a linux-powered 2 GB comp with wi-fi internet capabilities and expandable memory. The gadget sites are agog with excitement and can't wait to see what's on offer on 3rd. The cynics smell a rat. They feel, the final price will be $ 100. Time will tell who's right. Anyway, the catch is it's only for students. If that's the case, I wouldn't mind going back to school :-)
