OLPC project confirms one million units on order

By Justin Mann on
The OLPC project continues to inch towards launch, with units recently having gone in for production and nothing but good news coming from their representatives. With their first target countries of Argentina, Brazil, Libya, Nigera, Rwanda, Thailand and Uruguay, the OLPC group announced that they have one million units on order to go to that country. And that $100 price tag mentioned years ago wasn't a joke, either, with the initial cost for the unit being $130 and then it dropping down to $100 as production increases.

Quanta is claiming that they may ship upwards of 10 million of the XO laptops this year alone, which would be quite impressive.
