OLPC XO-3: An Impossible $75 Fantasy Tablet I Want to Believe In

Jeg gir' gerne det dobbelte hvis der samtidigt gives en gratis til et barn i Afrika ...

The dual-touchscreen XO-2 was a fantastical concept. But it's nothing on OLPC's XO-3, a hot, messy wet dream of a tablet: All semi-flexible plastic, multitouch, backlit and reflective ereading modes, thinner than an iPhone and $75.

Remember, this is the organization that didn't just scrap the XO-2, but couldn't even tack a touchscreen onto the current XO-1 laptop, which isn't anywhere near a hundred bucks. (Hey, at least they gave up on the dual-touchscreen idea.) I think this sadly says everything about the likelihood of it happening, as much as I'd love to see and play with this thing: "We don't necessarily need to build it," Negroponte told Forbes.
