The new XO tablet is wrapped in protective rubber and features a carrying loop. Its content was selected for age-appropriateness by OLPC and Common Sense Media, a non-profit organization that studies the effects that media and technology have on kids. The software package includes 100 free pre-loaded apps, games and books. A special application called XO Journal allows parents to keep track of how long their children use each of the apps, providing valuable information on a child’s interests.

Around 2.5 million XO Laptops have already been distributed in 60 countries by the One Laptop Per Child Association and the new $150 tablet will be launched at Walmart in the US as well as in developing countries such as Uruguay, Cambodia and Barbados.
