XO Laptop II

June 3, 2008

“With the XO (1.0), we pushed the boundaries of what a laptop could be by lowering the cost dramatically, being green (no heavy metals, lowest energy consumption ever), and a human-driven unique design approach.
Now, with XOXO (2.0), we are challenging what a truly collaborative and creative computing experience could be … a true departure from the traditional keyboard and screen layout, a new way to interface and play with data, information and communication.”
The OLPC idea created a trend for UMPC and 8″ laptops and Acer Asus selling the hugely popular Eee PC. How will this OLPC II motivate the world with this time?
