OLPC's XO Tablet launches at Walmart for $149

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) is announcing today that its latest Android tablet, dubbed the XO Learning Tablet, is available at Walmart for $149.

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) is announcing today that its latest Android tablet, dubbed the XO Learning Tablet, is available at Walmart for $149. While it is a bit surprising for OLPC to launch the tablet at Walmart and not in a developing country such as Ghana and Uruguay, it's still nice knowing that the tablet is made especially for kids.

Designed by OLPC, the XO Tablet is marketed as a tablet that can "help kids explore their dreams and spark their imaginations." Perhaps the main feature here is the list of apps that can encourage kids to study and improve particular fields of interest, whether it's music or math.

Kids can also use the tablet to watch videos, play games, and read eBooks. It is running Android so expect the familiar features of the OS including Google Play and other nifties. Walmart is currently selling the XO Tablet for $149.
