This is a folding e-book without a keyboard but with a price-tag of only $75. Altogether a much more appropriate package I would say (provided the battery life is acceptable and the new model is robust).
However, I'm not seeing any hardware specs on the new device even at [laptop.org...] and it's not clear if the $75 price tag represents reality or aspiration.

Sounds like it's got to be an aspiration...
The first XO2 machines should be ready to deliver to children in 2010.
The laptops which originally had a target price of $100 now cost $188 each.
The OLPC project believes the price tag for the new devices will be achieved thanks to falling prices for flat panel screens, the most costly of all laptop components.
