    Just wanted to share this news, seems like using Android's OS makes Tablet production really cheap. How else do you explain this new Tablet, called Aakash costing $60? And thats the non-subsidized price. Subsidized price is $35. That's cheaper than a tank of gas.

    Launched today, here are some specs of this new Tab

    - Android OS 2.2 Froyo
    - 377 MHz processor (what?)
    - No Android marketplace access (why?)
    - 7" resistive touch screen
    - no camera (meh)
    - 2 USB slots, 1 SD reader (alright, not bad!)

    I'm a bit skeptical for the need for such a cheap tablet at the cost of downgrading quality and features.
    Someone should review this for us (hint)

    That's not even worth throwing away $60

    I think it's $35 in India for poverty people who will have a chance to use it to get on the Internet I guess.
