The Intel classmate PC is a small, mobile learning-assistant educational solution that Intel specially developed for students in emerging markets. Intel are interested in running a version of Ubuntu on the device, and would like to include selected education applications from Edubuntu. An outline spec will be defined with Intel before the Education Summit, and this spec will be fleshed out during UES. The spec will carry forward into UDS for finalisation with the broader Ubuntu developer community.
The Classmate PC also runs Mandriva Linux and Windows XP. In related news, Dell has announced that they will offer an option for Ubuntu pre-installed on their systems.
