"The company says its flagship tablet textbook is still on track for release by the end of this year -- with limited available, at least -- tagged at $899 for the original double-screen model and $599 for the single-screener."
As much as I love my Kindle, I really don't think it would work very well in the academic setting for a lot of subjects, so there is certainly room for a tablet/ebook reader specifically designed for the educational setting. In a perfect world, I'd like to see this combined with the work of one of the many open source textbook projects so the cost of the device could at least be offset by the use of free content.
