OLPC is working to design an unbreakable screen and thus may not have the XO-3 prototypes ready to show at CES in January. Marvell and its partners will likely have lots of tablets to show by then though. An unbreakable and sunlight readable Pixel Qi screen is an important feature of the XO-3 to make it a viable option for developing countries, as well as its abilities to be used for full productivity and for fast text input.

This is a 45min Documentary film Directed by Chiara Sambuchi, produced by ZDF/Arte released by Lavafilm, just aired on the Arte TV channel in France and Germany. I have seen most of all the olpc related videos and documentary films that have been avaiable on the Internet during these past 4 years that I have been updating my video-blog at http://olpc.tv, this may be one of the best, most awesome and most beautiful Documentary films on the olpc project yet made.
French version titled: S’instuire pour 100 dollars:

If you are a TV Producer or a Documentary Film Festival organizer, you should contact the makers of the film at http://lavafilm.com/en/p_laptop.html to discuss the broadcast and distribution of this film.
If you understand French or German you should watch it now, before Arte.tv removes it from their website! I hope these links work for olpc fans worldwide. We have to wait for Lavafilm.com to communicate on the eventual availability of the English language version (and without the French or German dubbing on all the English language interviews).
