XO Laptops gone into mass production

Following a number of delays, the One Laptop per Child Foundation‘s much-awaited XO laptop for needy kids has finally gone into mass production. Early Tuesday (local time), Taiwan’s Quanta Computer started producing the green-and-white computer in its new Changshu manufacturing center, two hours northwest of Shanghai.

The commencement of mass production means children in developing nations could have the rugged, open-source laptops in hand starting this month. The OLPC has already announced orders for kids in Uruguay and Mongolia.
