Concept version for XO-3

XO-3 was a tablet/e-book reader intended to be developed under the One Laptop per Child initiative. It was planned to have a tablet computer form factor over the canceled dual-screen design concept of the XO-2. The inner workings were those of the XO 1.75 [1] together with the same ARM processor.

The XO-3 featured an 8-inch 4:3 1024 x 768-resolution display and used a Marvell Technology Group Marvell Armada PXA618 [2] SoC.[3] The XO-3 was intended to feature innovative charging options such as a hand crank or a solar panel.

The XO-3 tablet was planned to be released in 2012 for a target price below $100. The XO-3 and accompanying solar cell & handcrank power options were demoed at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, 2012 as shown on BBC News technology programme Click.[4]

The project was cancelled in November 2012,[5] but a new hardware product is under development with the name XO-4 touch.
