One Laptop Per Child's Next Move: the $100 Tablet

The nonprofit organization that has tried unsuccessfully for years to produce a sub-$100 laptop aimed at kids in the world's poorest places is throwing in the towel — and jumping on the tablet bandwagon.

One Laptop Per Child's next computer will be based on chipmaker Marvell Technology Group Ltd.'s Moby tablet design. Marvell announced a prototype of the device this year and said it costs about $99.

Nicholas Negroponte, founder of One Laptop Per Child, is optimistic his organization will be able to keep the price under $100 in part because Marvell plans to market its tablets widely to schools and health care institutions.
