Intel to Launch Low-Cost PCs for India in December
October 13, 2005
Intel has decided to roll out value PCs with a price tag of US$220 for the Indian farming community and remote areas in December 2005, the first in ten places across the country. Able to operate on a 80 volt power source, these PCs can be powered by industrial as well as agricultural generators. They can also run under high temperature and other tough environmental conditions. With a car battery as back-up power supply, they can also work in rural areas where electricity is difficult to get. Wireless access is also expected to be integrated in these PCs, which will be manufactured by computer makers in India and other areas.
