Default One Laptop Per Child To Throw Tablets Out of Helicopters

Instead of air dropping food, medical supplies or other useful items to remote villagers, the OLPC guys are going to drop laptops outside villages in the deepest parts of the jungle via helicopter. I like how they point out that all these XO tablets have wireless internet access...you know, because remote jungle villages all have mobile Wi-Fi hot spots. His latest plan? To drop the project's new XO-3 tablets from helicopters to locations outside of remote villages. He revealed his unorthodox plan Wednesday at the Open Mobile Summit in San Francisco. The third iteration of his low-cost tablet is designed to withstand both 30-foot drops and rain. According to PC Magazine, the XO-3 runs on solar power, making it ideal for isolated villages that lack electricity, and will be pre-loaded with 100 books and equipped with wireless internet connectivity.
