I’ve written about the Apple Tablet before and I’m pretty confident that we will see it 2010 – maybe event at the CES in January.
Before then it looks like we will also have the popular Amazon Kindle in the UK – James Clay writes on his blog that it will be available in the UK for shipping from October 19th and will retail at about £175. He also writes,
‘The Kindle as well as an e-Book reader has unlike the Sony e-Book reader has always on connectivity. Unlike laptops and netbooks the Kindle battery is designed to last weeks not hours!’
I still think eBook readers such as the Kindle have the potential to be a real game changer in education – but I wonder how well it will sell in the UK considering it is likely that we may be charged more than the US for the price of our eBooks? Will people just hold out for the Apple tablet.
On another note it also looks like Microsoft have been re-inventing their vision of a tablet PC. It looks impressive.
