India selling Tablet computers to students for $20 US (for others at $50)

I found this report rather interesting that Tablet computers are being made available to students in India for the equivalent of $20 US and to other Indian people for about $50 US. Not sure of the specs on these tablets but these are about a tenth to a fifth of the price these type of devices sell for in the US.

MUMBAI: City college students will now be able to purchase the Aakash computer tablet, which was launched in October, at just Rs 1,138. While the market price of the low-cost tablet is Rs 2,500, students will get it a much lower price.
Union minister Kapil Sibal launched the Aakash tablet for students across the country in October. It will now be made available to 100 varsities, including Mumbai University.
