Designed for students in developing nations, OLPC XO-4 is a sturdy, budget notebook.
One Laptop Per Child Foundation (OLPC) just passed their XO-4 through the FCC. Small 7.5-inch Pixel Qi sunlight touch-screen supports a stylus. XO-4 is a touch enabled laptop with twistable screen that turns into a tablet. The laptop is rugged with a handle on top obviously designed for younger crowd.
Running on energy efficient 1.2 GHz dual-core Marvell PXA2128 ARMv7 chip, XO-4 is not speedster, but it now supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi (5GHz), Bluetooth and touch as well. There will be options of 1GB of RAM (or optional 2GB) and 4GB of storage (or 8GB).
The operating system is Fedora 18 Linux with Sugar UI. OLPC XO-4 passed the FCC certification so it should be ready for sale in US fairly soon. We’re expecting it to cost around $200.
