The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project has launched its 2008 G1G1 campaign. Here is what G1G1 means.
- $199 to give a laptop to a child in the developing world. and/or
- $399 to give a laptop to a child and get one of your own.
As simple as that.
The XO laptop is designed for children and centers on providing a platform for 1:1 learning. While it is exciting that major PC manufacturers have launched sub-$500 laptops, the so-called netbooks category that features Linux-based OS', solid state hard drives, and ubiquitous network connectivity (see ASUS Eee PC, Dell Mini, Lenovo S Series, Intel Classmate PC), the OLPC project has the additional express intention of changing the world, one laptop at a time. We at Mobicip are working on supporting this effort the best we can. Soon we will support our service on Xo.
