Video demo of Opera on the OLPC laptop

March 27, 2007

A few weeks ago I sat down with Hakon Wium Lie, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Opera Software, for a short video interview. If you’ve missed the first part of the interview, you can still watch it here. In this episode, Hakon shows off the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) laptop with the Opera browser.

The OLPC laptop will cost around $100, and its goal is to provide these cheap laptop to school children in developing countries.

Though Opera won’t come pre-installed on this laptop (as a result of the OLPC’s open source policy), Opera has been approached by at least one country that is interested in using Opera as the default browser.

    The XO test version Opera has is now obsolete: the 366Mhz AMD processor, 128MB RAM at 266MHz and 512 NAND flash storage will be 433Mhz .13 micron chip (0.8 watts) backed up with chip caching at 128KB for both L1 and L2 cache, 256MB of DDR-RAM running at 333MHz, a 1 Gigabyte of NAND flash storage and, I think, the sweetest thing, a LiFePO4 Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery.
