The company that created the first small, student focused computers for the third-world isn’t content with netbooks. Now OLPC wants to create a low-cost tablet for kids in developing nations. The XO 3.0 is a thin, flat, touchscreen device that runs on a Marvell Armada 610 processor and offers 1080p video encoding, Flash support, and will be able to act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 8 users. The hope is to cut down on power consumption by half. The best part is that the tablet could cost as little as $75. OLPC and Marvell hope to show off a reference design by December of this year.
