That's a Marvell product platform page, not OLPC's.

Again, those are Marvell pictures, not OLPC's, and Marvell has lots of other folks interested in building their tablets.  In fact, the world is full of 7" 16:9 tablet folks.

But the most pertinent answer is that we're talking about XO-1.75 right now, which is a laptop.  An OLPC-3 tablet is a long way away and it's not really useful to discuss/speculate on it now.  We're working on XO-1.75.
