The One Laptop Per Child foundation has begun shipping XO notebooks sold as part of the "Give 1 Get 1" program, according to a post on OLPC fan site OLPC News. The post quotes a mailing list entry by OLPC Software and Content President Walter Bender that says, "The release of our Ship.2 Build (650) and firmware (Q2D07) occurred in time to be installed on the G1G1 laptops that will begin shipping on Monday."
The "Give 1 Get 1" offer ran from November 12 to November 26 and allowed users in the U.S. and Canada to order the tiny, child-friendly notebooks for $400 a piece. That $400 included one notebook for the customer and a $200 tax-deductible donation toward a notebook for a child in the developing world. As part of the program, T-Mobile gave participating customers one year of free service at its Wi-Fi hot spots across the United States.
