Renaissance Learning intros NEO 2 "laptop"


Renaissance Learning seems to have decided it was time to update its AlphaSmart-branded Neo portable word processor, with the company today rolling out the new and improved Neo 2. While it's virtually identical to the plain old Neo (seen above) on the outside, the Neo 2 does boast a few notable additions on the inside, including two-way wireless RF communication for classroom participation (which'll also allow for wireless printing), as well as a couple of new software programs. Otherwise, the Neo 2 boasts the same design and the same 5.75 x 1.5-inch monochrome LCD as the original Neo. No word yet on what it'll cost, although it'll apparently be "competitively priced" when it rolls out in late August.
