OLPC XO-1 Goes into Production
Three million OLPC XO-1s, at a price of $175.00 apiece, have been ordered by various governments around the planet, giving the company sufficient funding to start mass production of the units in October. No specific countries have been named, probably in an effort to dispel competition from other companies’ low cost computer sales efforts.
Even better news is that the non-profit organization may launch a commercial version for about $350.00 for children (and adults) who like many of the features, such as a sunlight readable display, low power consumption, and built-in wireless networking, and want their own XO-1s. This will be around that same time frame, right in line with the Christmas season. We hope that Santa will be packing lots of those in with his other goodies this year.
