The OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project has abandoned plans to produce an innovative dual-screen ebook/netbook, and is aiming for a tablet computer instead. There will also be an ARM-based version of the original XO-1 laptop, but this will not be able to run Microsoft Windows XP. In an interview with Xconomy Boston , Nicholas Negroponte, the project's founder, said:
2.0 has been replaced by two things: 1) model 1.75, same industrial design but an ARM inside, 2) model 3.0, totally different industrial design, more like a sheet of paper. No cost connectivity will start up with the ITU in Geneva. It has been the slowest piece.
