    Still Pricey for any volume movement. Needs competitors like Apple, Dell, Sony, and maybe Barnes & Noble and such. Some fully functioning laptops will be coming into this price range if not there already.

     

    Wife claims she will never give up hard copy books, magazines and such...... but then, she said she didn't want a laptop either. Now she treats it as hers and not ours.... except if she has a problem with something. But then she also reads dozens of "newspapers" and blogs also.

     

    I think dam breaks at <$250.00/unit and software (downloaded media) stays at 25% or less of printed paper media.

     

    Gad Zooks! just think of what this could do the the ripoff college text book operations. And, just think of saving all that paper and ink... and recycling problems. and........and....
