OLPC’s New XO Tablet Computer to Hit Store Shelves This Week
Fuseproject and the One Laptop Per Child Association (OLPC) just unveiled the new XO tablet, which is set to hit stores across the country this week! The powerful seven-inch Android tablet features an innovative learning interface, and it’s the only multilingual, Google-certified tablet for kids on the market.
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.
