According to the TED Blog the second generation of the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) XO laptop is slated for release in the next 18-24 months. This second generation laptop will be called the XO-2 and feature two touch screen displays that can be used independently or together as one flat panel. The new XO-2 is significantly smaller and lighter than the current XO laptop. Visit the TED Blog or Laptop Magazine for more pictures and a short video about the XO-2.
OLPC has not mentioned what type of operating system the XO-2 will have. Given the announcement last week that Windows XP will soon be available for the XO laptop, I won't be surprised if Microsoft technology is incorporated into the XO-2.
Later this week I'll be posting an in-depth review, including video comments from students, of the XO Laptop.
