I saw this video on MacRumors today and I was surprised at the things they are planning for an unreleased tablet, most likely the Apple Tablet. No longer would students have to carry around 4 books for their classes or even take notes!
Things I'm concerned about though is pricing. I've heard that it could cost around $1,000, which would be a lot for a school to pay if they wanted to get tablets for each student. It would lessen the cost of books since the eTextBooks would most likely be cheaper or could even be rented for a certain amount of time. Also the screen would have to be made for reading text more than displaying colors to reduce eye strain. We will all most likely find out in a couple of weeks at the Apple event!
