The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) initiative is expanding and after the first model was made available on the market, as the XO-1 with a $100 price tag, we skip right to the XO-3, a mere concept for now. What happened to the XO-2? The project was canned, it seems.
The OLPC XO-3 is similar to the original model, but it’s more of a tablet than a regular laptop. What’s really impressive is that designer Yves Behar hopes that this OLPC concept will be available for as low as $75, an incredible price tag for any PC.
XO-3 features an 8.5 x 11 touchscreen, a folding ring in the corner for better grip, a camera at the back and it supports induction charging. This is quite a slim device, its waistline being half the one of an iPhone. Also, we learn that this is a multitouch tablet, that will become real in 2012.
