|2nd generation OLPC

The current OLPC has some pretty cool features, but is fundamentally just a low-power laptop. Great for its intended audience, but nothing like a Macbook Pro.|
But the next generation OLPC looks to be another kettle of fish altogether. It's a dual-screen ebook. I want, want, want. If they can follow through on this, it should address the major weakness of all the eBook readers on the market: it'll have to be cheap, durable, able to read a wide variety of file formats, and unencumbered by DRM or other data-control limitations. Yum!
