OLPC has announced a brand new concept laptop/tablet that it believes it can have ready for 2010 and at a price of less than $100.

Okay, so we may be struggling to imagine that this will actually arrive – but the concept is glorious and the shots provided exciting enough to publish in their entirety.

So, without further ado, here's the OLPC's vision of 2012 – a tablet style device that will be available for just tens of pounds.
