Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"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."
