OLPC XO JB tab

The Miami-based electronics maker One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) has just introduced its 7-inch XO Kid tablet. The device is apparently delayed, though specs are somewhat that got extra boost up over its predecessor; now packing a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, coupled with 1GB of RAM alongside 8GB of (expandable) ROM. The device runs on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean, though it boots into custom apps made for kids – that parents approve, as do educational books.

With the 1024 x 600 pixels resolution offering, the tablet stands among other devices like Google’s Nexus7 and Acer’s Iconia B1. OLPC’s XO tablet also packs WiFi functionality as well as a pair of front and rear cameras. The slate can be grabbed through select Walmart stores in USA sometime in March (under $100?, maybe).
