Everybody is trying to grab a piece of the tablet action at the gadget geekfest known as the Consumer Electronics Show. Among them, the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, whose mission is to bring low-powered, low-cost devices to the developing world. They have just launched a hybrid computer that turns into a tablet, but plan to release a dedicated device by 2012. The new $165 (about £106) XO-1.75 laptop will start shipping after the summer to countries around the world to bring school children into the computer age. Its precursor cost around $199 (about £128) and OLPC says around two million have now been distributed.
