India's $35 tablet
has certainly managed to grab plenty of headlines, but it looks like the tablet itself isn't quite the one-of-a-kind device that it's been made out to be. As the folks at Androidos.in
have discovered, the tablet is apparently just the Speedpad / PWS700HA from Chinese manufacturer Hivision
, which was on display at CeBIT earlier this year and, at that point, was said to run about $100. What's more, Androidos.in
says that the Indian government's recently announced deal with HCL
is not actually a deal for the company to manufacture the tablet, but simply to provide an "infrastructure for testing the tablet." Unfortunately, the one mystery that still hasn't been solved is whether the $35 tablet will actually be a $35 tablet.
