The story of the $35 Android tablet planned to be released under government subsidy has had its share of controversy and frustration. After problems arose with the vendor chosen to produce the tablets, hopes that the Sakshat tablet (yes, that’s its real name) would ever see a release dimmed. Still, the Indian government promised a mid-2011 release and it looks like they will meet their goal. The first batch of tablets is prepped for shipping at the end of the month, and will be priced at 2,200 rupees (about $50) before the government subsidy kicks in. Taken into account, the price should drop right down to the $35 goal.
