"By now you probably have heard about the "pad" computer
designed in India that is being touted as costing thirty-five U.S.
Dollars to manufacture. While there is very little in the way of
technical details about it, some information has been published
that says it consists of:
* An ARM9 Architecture Processor from Freescale (I.MX233): 5
* Memory: 3 USD
* WiFi b/g: 4 USD
* Other "discrete" components: 3 USD
* Battery: 5 USD
* 7" 800x480 resistive touch screen: 15 USD
"for a total bill of materials: 35 USD, and rumors that in the
future this will drop to 20 USD and even 10 USD."
