The Simputer is a self-contained, open hardware Linux-based handheld computer released in 2002. Developed in, and primarily distributed within India, the product was envisioned as a low-cost alternative to personal computers. With initial goals of selling 50,000 Simputers, the project had sold only about 4,000 units by 2005, and has been called a failure by the news resources.
