Early prototypes of the XO laptops

The photo at left is from the OLPC blog. Christoph Derndorfer took a photo of these early mock-ups of the original XO-1. At least I think they're mock-ups; the screens don't look functional. But did you notice that the one in the back has a hand crank?

I have one other photo for you. This is a prototype for the next gen XO-3 tablet:

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."
