Teachermate: The $50 Handheld Computer For Kids

Here's the latest and greatest piece of kid-tech since the OLPC XO laptop made its debut last year. Costing only $50, the Teachermate has just been unveiled by a Chicago-based nonprofit called Innovations For Learning.

Engadget reports that this system will be sent out to 500 Chicago elementary schools over the next two years, in hopes that every child will eventually receive one. What's not to love about this tiny PC that comes with a 2.5-inch LCD display, an SD card slot for expandability, 512MB of RAM, and a built-in mic and speaker. With a complete reading and math curriculum on each device, these PCs are going to change the lives of many kids.

The Teachermate is said to become available on Amazon soon, so stay tuned.
