OLPC's 'Give One, Get One' Promotion Begins

Susan Hall

The One Laptop Per Child project on Monday kicked offits "Give One, Get One" program, though it says it can't guarantee the notebooks will be available for the holiday season, reports PC Magazine.


The 15-day promotion allows buyers to get one of the XO laptops to keep and donate one to a child in a developing country for $399.


Also Monday, T-Mobile said said it will offer buyers a free one-year subscription to its HotSpot service, which provides Wi-Fi Internet access at more than 8,500 locations in the United States, according to InformationWeek.


Production on the laptops began at a Chinese factory last week, but it's been a long, bumpy road for the initiative to provide rugged, low-cost laptops for children in developing countries.
