T-Mobile will be tossing in a year's worth of complementary HotSpot access for people that buy an XO laptop in the "give one get one" program.
In an email reminder, the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program detailed the following:
"Give One Get One" is the only time we are making the revolutionary XO laptop available to the public. For a donation of just $399 ($200 of which is tax-deductable), you will be giving the gift of education. Additionally, T-Mobile is offering donors one year of complimentary access to T-Mobile HotSpot locations throughout the United States, which can be used from any Wi-Fi-capable device, including the XO laptop.Mass production of the XO laptop began earlier this week.
That T-Mobile access is valued at nearly $360 since the HotSpot plan is $29.99 a month. The OLPC sale begins on Nov. 12.
