OLPC XO-Tablet coming to Walmart July 16th (maybe)

The One Laptop Per Child foundation set out with an ambitious goal about half a decade ago, to deliver a $100 laptop that could change the face of education in the developing world. That never quite happened, but the team has delivered a number of durable, inexpensive computers to classrooms around the globe and changed the way we think about cheap laptops.

OLPC’s XO Laptop project also probably sparked for-profit companies like Asus to introduce the first netbooks, which eventually drove down the average selling price of notebooks in general and paved the way for tablets.

Now the OLPC team is ready to launch something a bit different… a cheap Android tablet with a custom user interface designed for education. Unlike most OLPC products which aren’t sold at retail in the US, you should be able to pick up an XO-Tablet from Walmart starting July 16th. Maybe.
