CTDL 192: OLPC 2.0 (Kindle competition edition)

BBC has a picture of the proposed v2.0 of the OLPC/XO machine. I like the “book” design, and if it hits the $75 price point I’d be very tempted to participate in the get one give one.

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.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that this is how they should’ve done it the first time. Though learning the lesson after 1.0 isn’t too bad either.
