+ - OLPC To be a 75$ Android Tablet->

Syberz writes: The original One Laptop Per Child project was a noble endeavor which wasn't without its flaws. One good thing that came out of the original project was feedback about its shortcomings: movable parts that broke, cost, latin only alphabet keyboard, etc. To curb these issues, Nicolas Negroponte says that the next version will be a tablet running the Android OS: "The new tablets will have at least one, and maybe two, video cameras. They'll sport Wi-Fi connections to the Internet, multi-touch screens and have enough power to play high-definition and 3-D video. Unlike Apple Inc.'s iPad tablet, the device will also work with plug-in peripherals such as mice and keyboards."

On paper this sounds like a very interesting device, especially considering the cost of the alternatives.

Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
