XO Laptop 2.0

Nicholas Negroponte announced the next revision of the XO Laptop, the low-cost laptop designed by the One Laptop Per Child initiative for developing countries. The upcoming version eschews the typical laptop form factor, instead taking cues from the iPhone and the Nintendo DS to create a unit that opens like a book, has touch screens that can serve as keyboards, and work either in a laptop configuration or wide open as a big display. Here are a couple prototype images:
