One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) XO 3.0 Tablet at CES 2012

OLPC has announced that the XO tablet will be shown off at CES next week and will go into production after it is unveiled. The tablet will feature Marvell’s Armada PXA618 SOC, 512MB of RAM, an 8″ PixelQi 1024 x 768 display (LCD option also available) and will run on Android or OLPC’s own Sugar operating system (a customized version of Linux). One Laptop per Child is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide every child in the world access to new channels of learning, sharing and self-expression. In partnership with the public and private sectors and non-governmental organizations and supported by comprehensive implementation and pedagogical services, OLPC seeks  to  provide  each child with  a  rugged,  low-cost, low-power connected laptop that empowers individual learning and growth. The tablet will be priced at $100 to keep it affordable, but take not that regular consumers won’t be able to purchase the tablets individually, unless of course you’re the government of a developing country.
