One Laptop Per Child Unveils Plans for Next-Gen Device

One Laptop per Child (OLPC) launched its “$100 laptop,” called the XO, in November 2007 — but at an average price of $188 each. OLPC is committed to achieving an XO-2 target price of $75 when the device launches in 2010. OLPC’s XO-2 laptop is expected to be about the same size as a textbook, with enough memory to store up to 500 e-books.

“Based on feedback from governments, educators and, most important, from the children themselves, we are aggressively working to lower the cost, power and size of the XO laptop so that it is more affordable and usable by the world’s poorest children,” said OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte.
