New OLPC tablet to be unveiled at CES

The latest device from the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week.

The OLPC XO-3 tablet is reported to be ready to ship. It will feature rugged design, an 8-inch screen, a DC, hand crank or solar charging option, and will run on Linux. It will include a camera and memory card slot. The XO-3 uses a Marvell chip with an ARM-based CPU running at 1GHz.

OLPC produces computing devices for children in developing nations at the lowest possible cost. It is reported that the latest tablet device will be priced at under USD100.

The first version of OLPC’s child-centric laptop, the XO, was described as a revolution in low-cost, low-power computing. The XO has been distributed to more than 1.4 million children in 35 countries and in 25 languages.
