India’s $35 to ship in January - name it Sakshat to prevent international sales

India’s $35 to ship in January | The Digital Reader

The $35 tablet is real: HCL Technologies Ltd will build 100,000 of them as a government project that is part of an overall plan to increase the use of technology in education.

Sakshat is sanskrit for "Embodiment". I'm sure if the technology ever makes it to Europe and North America it will be marketed under a different name.

Hey, it couldn't be vapour if there is a Wikipedia page for it.
