OLPC chairman Nicholas Negroponte announced the XO-3 tablet computer is delayed to February 2011, about 45 days later than originally planned, because the company is looking for a more robust display solution.
Negroponte said that he wants the screen to be flexible so that it is more resistant to breaking, but that it doesn't need to roll up.
"The issue has been really finding an unbreakable material, which may not be plastic, it may be glass or some flavor of glass," he said during a video interview at MIT.
At first the XO-3 won't be branded OLPC, rather made by Marvell, with the actual XO-3 to follow.
The tablet will eventually cost US$75 and during a May 2010 interview, Negroponte said hitting that mark wouldn't be a problem.
