OLPC 2.0 Vs Kindle

without comments

I’m a fan of the Kindle concept (just not the price), and I’m a big fan of the OLPC concept (though the execution hasn’t matched original expectations), so when I see that the new version of the OLPC is expected to be in an e-book type format (at a cheap price) I’m intrigued. Pop over to the BBC site to see a picture of the prototype.

The revamped machine created by the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project looks like an e-book and has had its price slashed to $75 per device.
OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte gave a glimpse of the “book like” device at an unveiling event at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The first XO2 machines should be ready to deliver to children in 2010.
