OLPC XO-3 concept announced... [Dec. 29th, 2009|10:49 pm]

Just over a year ago, I got our XO-1 from the US, thanks to jena. See the posts I made about it here.

Well, it would seem that they've just announced the concept for the XO-3, which will be tablet-based.

Now, it's said that they're going to try and bring this in at under $100, and I've even seen the figure of $75 mentioned. If they decide to launch the Give One Get One scheme for this one - where I buy two laptops, I get one and a child in the developing world gets one - then I'm definitely on that bandwagon! :o)

Hopefully they'll ship to UK on this one - you ended up having to spend more on shipping from here than the OLPC itself! But if not and you're game, we'll do it again, knowing ahead of time that UPS is the only viable overseas option.

If it does turn out to be $75, then there's no way I'm buying it from the States this time!

Thanks for the offer though, Jena... I'll keep that on standby! :o)

Incidentally, I don't post much
(you know, I could end that sentence there?)
about the XO-1, but Amy uses it all the time, she really loves it.
