No OLPC for consumer planned right now

Posted on Saturday, January 13 2007 @ 20:55:15 CET by

The One Laptop Per Child Project told ARS Technica that they aren't planning to make the OLPCs available to consumers in the West right now but it's possible in the future:
The Project is drumming up interest in its quest to bring personal computing technology to the world's poorest children. The project may also be gauging product interest among consumers in the so-called "developed world." If the formula can be worked out, there may be a way to fund the project in part using revenues from a consumer release.

Nevertheless, OLPC told Ars Technica in a statement that the company has no plans for a consumer version of the laptop. "Contrary to recent reports, One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) is not planning a consumer version of its current XO laptop, designed for the poorest and most remote children in the world," said Nicholas Negroponte, OLPC chairman. He added, "XO will be made available to governments in very large quantities to be given to all children free, as part of the education system."
