Most people have heard of the $100 laptop, or the One Laptop Per Child project, and soon the founders of the project will unveil their newest endeavor: the $100 tablet, according to CNN and the New York Times.
"The tablet is a refinement of the laptop," Yves Behar, one of the people behind the One Laptop Per Child project, said according to CNN. "It's much smaller, it's much lighter, it uses less energy, less materials. It can be even more cost effective."
The new tablet has been six years in the making, according to the New York Times, and is built with children living in the poorest countries in mind. The tablet, called the XO-3, is solar-powered, has 4GB of internal storage, a standard USB outlet, is rubberized and has a waterproof back.
The XO-3 is slated for launch later in 2012, according to the New York Times and CNN.
