$100 XO3 tablet coming to CES from One Laptop Per Child

Not for profit organisation One Laptop For Child set to reveal rugged tablet for kids in the third world

The cheapest tablet on sale in 2012 may not be the Kindle Fire after all. One Laptop Per Child, a charitable organisation that aims, as you can probably guess, to provide cheap laptops to underpriveleged kids in the third world, have revealed that their next big announcement will be a £70 touchscreen tablet.

The XO3, as the tablet is called, features an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1024x768 pixels, 512MB RAM and a 1GHz processor. Under the hood, the tablet will run either Android or Linux. The finished product is expected to make its debut at this year's CES.

Sadly for bargain-seeking would-be tablet owners, picking up an XO3 isn't as simple as popping down to Comet. The tablets will only be sold in bulk, and only to organisations working with third world countries. Fore more on OLPC's mission, check out the video below.
