OLPC XO-1.75 will support multitouch

The One Laptop Per Child project has announced it will be adding touch and multitouch support to the OLPC XO-1.75, the next generation version of their convertible netbook.  The first step is updating the Sugar OS to support touchscreen technology; so far, Sayamindu Dasgupta's port of the MeeGo on-screen keyboard has already been completed.

Future tablet form-factor OLPC devices – based on Marvell's Moby platform – will use this same build of Sugar.  Meanwhile OLPC has negotiated an almost completely open codebase for its embedded controller in the XO-1.75.
