    I thought OLPC was a charity thing... for education in 3rd world countries. It'll be tough selling it at stores in the 1st world. LeapPad makes a pretty good child's toy that's similar to a tablet and runs educational software (no internet though). And I'll bet anyone with access to ebay can get a Nook tablet on the cheap these days.

    Maybe its to get some money for giving them away elsewhere?

    I have to agree with you comment on 3rd world counties. The vast majority of people in rural areas in country don't have an inkling what a tablet is (even of the pharmaceutical kind) and have no use for the internet. It's a shame really.
