The One Laptop per Child Group plans to display a $100 tablet at CES 2012. This tablet will be called the OLPC X.O 3.0 Tablet.
The OLPC’s mission is to provide Laptops (and now Tablets) to children who have ‘little or no access to education because of insufficient resources’.
“We’re proud to introduce the XO 3.0 tablet, showcasing the design, durability and performance features that make it a natural successor for our current laptops, which have been distributed to more than 2.4 million children in 42 countries and in 25 languages,”
-Edward McNierney, chief technology officer of One Laptop per Child
The Tablet has a 8 inch screen, Up to 10 hours of battery life, Supports both Android and Linux, and the tablet can be powered by hand cranks and by solar panels.
We will have more on this $100 tablet in the coming week.
