thatkid_2002 writes: Engadget has a story Here about a new concept design for the OLPC. It is an insanely thin, powerful (800Mhz ARM) 8.5 x 11 tablet aiming for release in 2012. Considering touch screen phones are coming down in price is it so difficult to believe that a mass produced BeagleBoard design paired with multi-touch screen and battery could be a mere $100 (AUD or USD, take a pick) in two years time?
And yes, it will run Linux — with Multi-touch.
What is Slashdot's projections on OLPC and the price of hardware in the future?
