Intel's Got A Plan For India's Rural PC Needs

Intel has launched what it describes as a "community PC platform" meant to meet the needs of rural communities in India by handling high heat, humidity, and dust, while running on low power. Intel is pushing it as part of its Jagruti (awakening) initiative to work with ISPs, businesses, government, and schools to get Internet kiosks in rural communities. Intel hasn't disclosed manufacturers for the platform. But the approach is to share a full-powered PC that can support functions like remote diagnostics--far different than the $100 laptop being touted by MIT prof Nicholas Negroponte for bridging the digital divide in emerging economies.
