Yesterday, we reported on a great movement by the non-profit organization One Laptop Per Child to focus on providing affordable tablet devices to under-privileged children. After seeing that these tablet devices would initially be offering Android as their operating systems, we immediately took notice.


One thing we couldn’t find, however, was a picture of how these devices might look. Thankfully, OLPC has provided some prototype renderings of what they expect the tablet devices would look like when they show them off in January 2011 at CES. The tablets share the same funky designs as the laptops they also manufacture.

We also learned that they are going to be aiming for $75 – a great price that puts it considerably lower than the $99.99 they were aiming at before. The tablet will have a 9-inch screen (bigger than some of the high-end offerings out there!) What do you think of it? These will be aimed at children, of course, but with Android being used to power these devices, is it going to be one you keep your eye on?
