Chinese computer maker Lenovo on Tuesday said it would soon launch a new computer priced at $200 (about Rs 8,000) in India.

"We will launch the product in China first. After getting a feedback, we will roll out the device in the Indian market," Lenovo Group USA President and Chief Executive Officer William J Amelio said on the sidelines of India Economic Summit currently underway in New Delhi

Although Amelio did not specify a time for the product's launch, he indicated that the computer would be Internet-enabled.

He added that the firm could produce five million computers every year in India and may export computer parts and other hardware from the country.

Lenovo is also planning to export notebooks from its Baddi, Himachal Pradesh plant.

Amelio pitched a liberal and uniform tax regime for it to conduct its business in India and provide opportunity of greater investments.
