OLPC laptops get christened as 2B1

A previous article on OLPC on my journal is here

A new post on ubergizmo (article link) reports the new name of the laptops developed under the OLPC project.

The name 2B1 probably comes from the ability to create a mesh network out of the box, connecting two computers without an Internet connection. Both computers can then share an Internet connection automatically with just one of them connected.

UPDATE:Latest OLPC model photo taken by Kushal Das in Berlin.
