OLPC radios get FCC approval


Based on recent FCC documents, it would appear that Quanta, manufacturer of Nicholas Negroponte's OLPC, has just received approval on the system's WiFi radio, which means that the 802.11b/g component of the humanitarian-laptop-project is now signed, sealed, and delivered (at least in the eyes of one semi-prominent US agency). This is an interesting development because it opens a door for the child-themed edutainment and communication machine to not just hit developing countries, but also land in places a little closer to home -- and despite recent rumblings that have been both contrary and concurrent, if the sub-$200 laptop does make its way toward America, it seems likely that the symbolic Sugar OS will be intact.
