OLPC to add multitouch screen to future XO-1.75 laptop

http://news.idg.no/cw/art.cfm?id=B41...A21BB3015A327B

Quote:
Nonprofit organization One Laptop Per Child on Thursday said it is adding a multitouch screen to the upcoming XO-1.75 laptop and is modifying software to take advantage of the new hardware.

The XO-1.75 with a touch-sensitive 8.9-inch screen will start shipping next year. The laptop will run on an Arm processor and is the successor to the current XO-1.5 laptop, which runs on a Via x86 processor. OLPC will also add a multitouch screen on the next-generation XO-3 tablet, which is due to ship in 2012.
2012?

Keep in mind that they were announcing the XO-2 for a long time, and eventually canceled it completely (which is when they decided to release the XO-1.5 instead). Will we really see an XO-3 in 2012... ???

My son has an XO-1. It's a pretty good machine overall...

Heck, I'm pushing 40 and use an OLPC. Well, I did install Ubuntu on it, but it makes a great reader and a decent semi-rugged portable computer.

I've felt for a long time the one thing it misses the most is a touchscreen. I've considered hacking one into it, but nobody seems to make one that matches the screen's dimensions.
