Uruguay orders 100,000 laptops from OLPC
Remember the OLPC project? One Laptop Per Child? A $100 laptop that actually costs over $200 in some countries? Well, the XO Laptop has received its first batch of orders and it comes from Uruguay.
100,000 is the number of XO laptops that will become available to children that have 6 up to 12 years. A new world for them, and a new generation of users on the internet. Hopefully, they will use the laptop on a good and useful way instead of otherwise.
Some info about the device:
The XO laptop, as the machine is known, has been developed to be used primarily by children in the developing world.
It is durable, waterproof and can be powered by solar, foot-pump or pull-string powered chargers. It includes a sunlight readable display so that it can be used outside and has no moving parts.
