PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Of course. Just as I'm about to finish university, and leave school behind me for good, some company comes up with a dual screen tablet which I would've killed for to replace that boatload of textbooks I've read over the years. It's called the Kno (more here), and it's a massive thing for sure - but considering their target demographic, it actually makes sense.

Kinda neat, but realistically they have no chance whatsoever. Who is going to buy a device just for school and reading textbooks? It would make so much more sense to add some annotation features to the iPad ebook reader. Now you have this device without the limitations.


Simple: Universities and Colleges themselves. Get a few schools that are already heaving invested in technology in the classroom, pull in at least a couple textbook publishers and viola.
