Yesterday, OLPC project founder Nicholas Negroponte indicated that their next generation XO-2 will almost certainly eschew it's current x86-based design and move towards one that is based on the ARM, the most common embedded RISC architecture in the world. It's used in over a billion cell phones and smartphones, including the iPhone and the BlackBerry, and is licensed for use in embedded CPUs produced by Texas Instruments, Marvell, Broadcom, nVidia, Samsung, and FreeScale, among others.
