We usually show you concepts designed for rich teenagers or other similar stylish handsets that would rule the market in the West. However, we must take into account that affordability is a key factor in third world countries, so any concept that resembles the OLPC is welcome.

The Spark UMPC was created by Project Inkwell and Ideo and it’s destined to reach the poorer countries and specially children.

It comes with a wide screen display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a full QWERTY keypad and wireless mouse and it should be used by children under 12. The Spark will be the ideal educational tool and a much cheaper one than the OLPC, I suppose. Now let it be real and pass the design phase!
