on the olpc wiki I've seen links to the New York deployment in the past

currently one of the links on the front page of the wiki points at 
http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/editors/22041/ (March 2008) which 
states that 400k laptops are going to peru

also on that same front page there is a link to 
http://radian.org/notebook/astounded-in-arahuay (also march 2008) which 
states 260 odd thousand laptops.
