India has introduced a cheap tablet computer, saying it would deliver modern technology to the countryside to help lift villagers out of poverty.

The computer, called Aakash, or “sky” in Hindi, is the latest in a series of “world’s cheapest” innovations in India that include a 100,000 rupee ($2104) compact Nano car, a 750 rupee ($15.78) water purifier and $2078 open-heart surgery.
