Intel Corporation is planning to bring low-cost PCs in the Indian market. Soon the company will bring its Classmate-PC for educational purposes in the range of INR 9,000 to INR 11,000.
Educomp, a K-12 educational content providing company, has developed some of the educational content for pilot tests. The classmate PC is based on Intel's 900MHz Celeron-M processor, which can be used by the school children. Instead of hard disk, the laptop has a flash-disk memory. Around 100 Classmate-PCs would be shipped to India by the end of 2007. Initially, the laptop is being tested in some of the private schools in Delhi.
