At the OLPC’s Global Country Workshop in Cambridge, Massachusetts last week, Nicholas Negroponte revealed mockups of the next generation One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) device: XO-2.

The dual touch screen design can be used as either a laptop, a book, or a tablet. Since it relies on the touch screens to provide key entry, it can be reconfigured for younger and older audiences. It also can be reconfigured for application-specific layouts. And, in an interview with Laptop Magazine, XO-2 designer Mary Lou Jepsen suggests the new machine will incorporate haptic technologies.

The XO-2 is scheduled for release in 2010.
