3 INTRODUCTION  Simputer aims at developing low cost device that can pervade the rural landscap, especially in the third world countries  The simputer is a low cost portable alternative to pc’s,by which the benefits of the computer can reach the common man  The key to bridging the digital device is to have shred devices that permit truly simple and natural user interfaces based on sight, touch and audio.

4  Def:-”Simputer is a self contained handheld computer designed for in environments where computing devices such as personal computers are deemed inappropriate.”  Due to the low cost it was deemed appropriate to bring computing power to the developing countries.

5 AFFORDABLE COMPUTING  The projected cost of the simputer is about Rs 9000  The smartcard feature that the simputer provides enables the simputer to be shared by the community  This feature allows for personal information management at the individual level

6 HISTORY  The simputer project was conceived during the organisation of the global village, conducted during bangalore IT.com event in october  Expanding these discussions, introduced the word “simputer” as an obvious twist on the word computer.  Simple,Inexpensive,Multi-lingual,People’s “uter”-derived from the computer

7 DOWNLOADS  Software downloads of the simputer Tap_a_Tap IMLI Text-to-speech Smartcard X Window System files Soft mode Linux tool chain

8 C REATING A T EXT  There are two options : Soft keyboard can be brought up on the touch screen and you poke at it to enter one character at a time. To use a novel character entry software called Tap-a-Tap Tap-a-Tap is a character input application, similar to but distinct from from graffitty characters are entered using a 3x3 grid by tapping grid interiors

9  Hardware downloads of the simputer  The simputer run son the processor called Intel-strong arm chip which is known for its low power consumption  Simputer uses the AAA batteries

10 IML  IML-”Information Markup Language”  The language has been created to suit the unique needs of the simputer and simputer is however XML based rather than HTML  This is because IML is XML application and so does follow the internet standards

11 SMARTCARD  The smart card is the basic method by which the simputer can be personalised so that it can be passed to others  A users profile can also be stored in the smartcard

12 INTERFACES OF SIMPUTER  Touch panel overlay  Speaker and microphone jacks  Smart-card connector  USB connector  Serial port  Infrared data association  Grey scale/STN/TFT(depends on model)

13 SOFTWARE PACKAGES  Scheduling  Calendar  Voice recording and playback  Spread sheet  Internet and network connectivity  Web-browsing and  An e-library  Games  J2MEand GNU(free software implementation of.net)
