OLPC Gen 2 device to be a two-screen book

At today’s OLPC Media event, Nicholas Negrponte announced concept designs for the next generation device.

Wade Roush is blogging the event here and I’ve borrowed one of his photos of the proposed OLPC 2, shown below.


The small device will boast two touch screens that can be used as a two-page book, as a notebook-style keyboard/display combination, or a horizontal/slate mode.

Of course, this is a concept design and who knows what a shippable device will really look like. We all know how far Haiku got, for instance.

But I think this is going a good direction.

Very nice.

Laptopmag.org is at the event too and has some more pictures and a video of part of Negroponte’s presentation.
