Non-profit organisation looks to develop third generation of low cost PC

One Laptop Per Child developing tablet PC

One Laptop Per Child, the organisation that seeks to provide cheap laptops for third world children, has been granted £3.5 million to develop a tablet PC.

According to the BBC, this will be the third generation of machines to reach development and as such will be named the XO-3. The device is expected to be available in 2012.

The One Laptop Per Child organisation was created in an effort to develop a sub-$100 laptop that could reach a wide user-base among third world educational establishments. Unfortunately, the project was only ever able to create a device that retailed at $199, and did not sell in large numbers.
