Knowledge Navigator +22 years

In 1987, Apple made this video.

ComputerWorld showed off some demo shots of the new OLPC.


With everyone freaking out about what Apple may do for the Tablet form factor – and even some manufacturers holding off releasing devices until they see what Apple is up to, I’d say that this market is probably going to change rapidly. We’ve already seen the impact of the iPhone and iPod touch to the portable computer/mobile phone market so that it now has carriers, manufacturers and OS-vendors scrabbling to catch up – but what does the future bring.

Is the world ready for a new tablet, whether that’s an Apple tablet or a OLPC? Frankly – looking at the OLPC – I’d buy one (or more) for my kids.

  1. The two screen form factor is so versatile – as demonstrated by the OLPC mockups. Protects the screen while not in use – something I’d fear with the Kindle. Perfect for books – very traditional. Track record for games. Could watch video on one while doing emails on the other. And someone will provide a rollup rubber keyboard for some serious typing!

    Maybe Apple will team up with OLPC and give them a kick start?
