ONE LAPTOP PER CHILD ORDER REPORTS 'INCORRECT'
Reports that Brazil, Nigeria, Argentina and Thailand have each committed to buying a million laptops from the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) programme are "incorrect", a spokesperson for the project has told ZDNet UK.
"We have not signed any agreements for orders, but we are in communication with the countries mentioned. OLPC has asked that all interested parties wait to see a working machine before placing their orders," the spokesperson said on Tuesday.
"The machines have not yet been manufactured, though we do currently have 500 of our A-test motherboards distributed amongst open-source developers world-wide as part of our developer programme," said the spokesperson, adding that the OLPC project does not yet have a commercial version underway.
