OLPC promises $75 tablet for CES 2011

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) founder Nicholas Negroponte has promised to PCWorld that he would demo the XO-3 tablet prototype at CES 2011.

"At CES we will show a tablet that can be and will be used for children probably in the developed world," Negroponte said Tuesday. "It will allow us to start testing many of the things that combine a laptop, an iPad and a Kindle."


"You'll see from us, God willing, an Arm tablet," he said. "The screen area will probably be a 9-inch diagonal, maybe more."

I will believe it when I see it. He's made and broken too many promises before for me to take him at his word.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
