Intel's computer for developing nations.

Intel eyes PCs for developing nations

Intel is working on a durable, low-cost personal computer aimed at developing nations. The plan is to connect the computers to the internet using wireless protocols. The computers are specialized to withstand dust and heat, and to operate on a fluctuating power supply.

"Based on several pilot projects conducted throughout India, Intel sees the Community PC as most attractive to villagers seeking a registry for government paperwork they would otherwise have to travel extensively to retrieve and file."
