Nicholas Negroponte chairman of One Laptop Per Child relase XO-3 tablet for children.The XO-3 tablet debut at CES 2011.XO-3 tablet is developed by Marvell and based on the Moby platform….


The non-profit One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) organization will delay the release of its XO-3 slate-type computer for children by about 1.5 months from the initial schedule. Moreover, the initial XO-3 will be branded under Marvell trade-mark and is unlikely to be aimed at poor countries. The actual OLPC XO-3 is projected to become available later.Apparently, the reason behind the setback was OLPC’s demand for a rugged touch-screen that could be enough responsive and could not be broken easily.

The appropriate materials have been found, it appears, but the device will only show up in February, 2011, approximately 45 days later than originally planned. Moreover, the initial batches of the XO-3 tablet will be distributed under Marvell brand-name, as the company helped to develop the product. Given that Marvell is a company in search for profits, it is unlikely that it would sell the slates to developing nations at the price of manufacturing.

The XO-3 tablet is based on the Moby platform that was developed by Marvell. The tablet will come with a 1+ GHz ARMADA 610 ARM processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio, GPS, 3D graphics, 1080p HD encoding and decoding capabilities and have Adobe Flash player.

XO-3 slate was scheduled to arrive in 2012 and was promised to be flexible. But around middle-2010 the organization changed its mind and decided to release non-flexible XO-3 tablet in late-2010 or very early-2011. Mr. Negroponte promised that eventually the cost of OLPC’s slate would drop to $75, but given the fact that the organization is allowing Marvell to sell the product initially, it may be assumed that the price-targets were not exactly met.
