LXer: Venezuela Orders 1 million laptops from Portugal

Published at LXer:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Saturday ordered 1 million low-cost laptops from Portugal one of several bilateral deals that Portuguese officials valued at more than US$3 billion. The agreements cover housing, utility infrastructure and energy cooperation. "We are building a solid relationship" with Portugal, Chavez said at a signing ceremony in Lisbon. "We have negotiated (these deals) with our mutual interests in mind." The blue-and-white laptops based on Intel Corp.'s Classmate PC design are manufactured under license in Portugal and are primarily aimed at schoolchildren in developing countries. They contain the latest Intel microprocessors, digital cameras and broadband Internet access.
