    I know but at that price, I guess the capacitive screen is a luxury.

    Capacitive screen is a pain to use. It,s not a luxury at all IMHO.

    At Rs. 1750, divide it by 49.50 and you will get the current dollar rate which is way less than $60, lets make sure this is a good precedence that will stay. The tablet was developed at IIT Rajasthan and Datawind manufactures it.
