|These guys are working on a tablet for education.|
Imagine that, once you have your classes, you could go to a page where you could download all your books to your tablet. Better still, how about paying maybe $50 each instead of $100 or more? Perhaps even less if the professors start putting excerpts in there from their own works, instead of full books.
A dream scenario for students, a nightmare scenario for textbook publishers bloated on decades of high prices. They will delay this advance as long as they can, but there's an opportunity for new publishers to step in and make a killing. I hope, for the student's sake, they do so.
And please note that this could mean tens of millions of tablets sold for students... on top of other tablet sales. Want to bet whether those students would be putting games on their tablets?
