I'm confused:

What's the difference between the XO-4 (without the touch) and the XO-1.75
going to be?

Also, Neonode's press release refers to the touch-enabled device as "OLPC
XO Touch 1.75" which fits in much better with the current naming scheme.
Especially since an XO-4 which will pressumably become available before the
XO 3.0 tablet sees the light of day would make the tablet seem outdated
from day one.
