The Indian government has unveiled the prototype of an iPad-like touch-screen laptop, with a price tag of $35 (£23), which it hopes to roll out next year.
Aimed at students, the tablet supports web browsing, video conferencing and word processing, say developers.
Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal said a manufacturer was being sought for the gadget, which was developed by India's top IT colleges.
An earlier cheap laptop plan by the same ministry came to nothing.
The device unveiled on Thursday has no hard disk, using a memory card instead, like a mobile phone, and can run on solar power, according to reports.It would cost a fraction of the price of California-based technology giant Apple's hugely popular iPad, which retails from $499.Mr Sibal said the Indian tablet, said to run the Linux operating system, was expected to be introduced to higher education institutions next year.
The plan was to drop the price eventually to $20 and ultimately to $10, he added.
Unveiling the gadget, the human resource development minister told the Economic Times newspaper it was India's answer to the "$100 laptops" developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the US.
"The solutions for tomorrow will emerge from India," Mr Sibal said, reports news agency AFP.
Last year, one of the ministry's officials announced it was about to unveil a $10 laptop, triggering worldwide media interest.
But there was disappointment after the "Sakshat" turned out to be a prototype of a handheld device, with an unspecified price tag, that never materialised.
To develop its latest gadget, the ministry said it had turned to the elite Indian Institute of Technology, and the Indian Institute of Science, after a lacklustre response from the private sector.
Mamta Varma, a ministry spokeswoman, said the device was feasible because of falling hardware costs.
Several global manufacturers, including at least one from Taiwan, had expressed interest in making the device, she said, although no deals had been agreed, and she declined to name any of the companies.
The project is part of a government initiative which also aims to extend broadband to all of India's 25,000 colleges and 500 universities.
In 2005, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) unveiled the prototype of a $100 laptop for children in the developing world, although it ended up costing about double that price.
In May, Nicholas Negroponte - of the MIT's Media Lab - announced plans to develop a basic tablet computer for $99 through his non-profit association, One Laptop per Child.

Opera Mini 5 was a significant update to the world’s most popular mobile browser, which made it a whole lot more awesome. Unfortunately for some users, Opera Mini 5 didn’t work on the absolute low-end handsets that Opera Mini 4 handled with aplomb.
Opera Mini 5.1, the first significant update to Opera Mini 5, is optimized to run on phones with low memory. The updated build features a refined skin with improved tab handling and introduces overall performance improvements.
While this update is not critical for smartphone users, it is a highly recommended update for everyone using Opera Mini on low-end handsets (especially those who have been encountering out of memory issues).
“The goal with Opera Mini is to make the Web available to anyone, anywhere, regardless of where they come from or the handset they have,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, . “More than 61 million people on over 3000 devices have chosen to surf the Web with Opera Mini for fast and easy Internet access at a considerably lower cost.”
You can find out more about Opera Mini 5 from our previous articles. Opera Mini can be downloaded from m.opera.com and opera.com/mobile/download/. Desktop wallpapers celebrating the new release are also available from the Opera Design Blog.

Mozilla on Wednesday released the Firefox 4 public beta, the latest iteration of the free, open-source Web browser.
The new release comes several days after Mozilla released the first pre-release code for Firefox 4, and the updated version brings a number of changes designed to enhance the browser's usability and security.
The obvious change is the browser's look. Like Chrome and Opera, tabs are now located at the top of the browser (Windows only), and a new add-on manager is included to make it easier to find plugins.
Under the hood, Firefox 4 beta 1 heightens security, offers crash protection, supports technologies that are vying to become new Web standards (HTML5 and WebM), and contains other bells and whistles.
The download is available on the Mozilla Web site. Look for a hands-on with Firefox 4 beta shortly at PCMag.com.

Textaphrenia, post-traumatic text disorder, textiety, binge texting are other maladies that await the text-addicted, Australian researcher Jennie Carroll said yesterday.
Carroll, of Melbourne's RMIT University, was commenting on figures from service provider Boost Mobile that SMS traffic had almost doubled in volume since 2008.
One of its teenage customers was averaging 444 messages a day.
Among the possible downsides of SMSing, outlined by Carroll:
Textaphrenia is the mistaken belief that you have heard the beep of an incoming SMS.
Post-traumatic text disorder is when texters walk into things or become oblivious to what is around them.
Textiety is the crisis of confidence when time goes by without an SMS being received, while Binge texting is the sending a blizzard of SMSes to boost confidence.
"With textaphrenia and textiety, there's a feeling 'no one loves me, no one's contacted me'," Carroll said.
She said binge texting could either reflect the delusion you had more friends than you actually had, or be a cry for help. "You think you've been left out of the loop so you send a lot of texts and wait for the response," Carroll said. - Sapa-dpa
