One Laptop per Child (OLPC) and Marvell, maker of integrated silicon solutions, have agreed to jointly develop a family of next-generation OLPC XO tablet computers based on the Marvell® Moby reference design.

The XO tablet will require approximately one watt of power to operate (compared to about 5 watts necessary for the current XO laptop) and, will feature a multi-lingual soft keyboard with touch feedback.

The device combines hardware and software to deliver a platform that will enable users to learn to read, write, and create their own education programs and share all of these experiences via a mesh network model. The device will also feature an application to directly access more than 2 million free books available across the Internet.
