The first XO2 machines should be ready to deliver to children in 2010, 
with prices slashe to $75. The new version loses the green rubbery 
keyboard, sporting instead a single square display hinged at its centre. 
This allows the device to be split into two touch screens that can 
either mimic a laptop with keyboard or the pages of a book. The new 
machine will also be more energy efficient, half the size of the first 
generation device and lighter to carry. They have also resumed announced 
the "Get-One-Give-One" programme. www.laptop.org
