If the first OLPC XO laptop was considered a fashion item, just think how popular this thing will be. Of course, at the moment it’s only a little bit more real than fairy dust, and the idea that it will cost $75 in 2010 is laughable, but you have to admire the project’s ambition. At half the size of the original OLPC, the new XO DS (as I’m calling it) will sport dual touchscreens and draw only 1 watt of power.
Now, call me pessimistic, but something here is going to have to give. Either the price, the power, or the features will not be as described today. Still, it’s a sexy little device and possibly more practical than the original.
