The product is designed by Vivitar, which is a price-conscious manufacturer, selected by Walmart who is the retail partner of this product. This does prove that for the first time the company OLPC is not having any direct hand in the creation of the tablets hardware. The prototype has gone through some tweaks for sure since the introduction at the CES. XO tablet runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, it has the very interesting “I Want to Be An…” UI, which is will be amazing to browse via the Jelly Bean. The tablet features Marvell’s Armada PXA618 SOC, 512MB of RAM, an 8″ PixelQi 1024 x 768 display (LCD option also available).

A whopping 200 apps will be pre-loaded into the tablet, 100 of which are in English and the other half in Spanish. It will also have 200 books (also 100 English, 100 Spanish), including selections from content partners like Sesame Street and Oxford University Press. A very good concept developed by the company, they’re are trying to make sure that the child is entertained and remains educated even when offline or without having the support of an internet network provider.
