iPad vs Kindle vs Netbooks vs Books: What's Best for Students? | -... - 51 views

  • Textbooks

      Obviously talking about the collegiate level...middle school textbooks would be roughly $50 per class (~$200) and used for multiple years
  • 3G wireless for $130 plus $15 or $30 per month
    • Todd Williamson
      Also has wifi on all models
  • imagine not being able to listen to music or read an e-book while surfing the web

      By all accounts, the iPad will be running current iPhone OS 3.1 which does allow you to listen to music while doing other things...the rub will be creating a presentation in Keynote for iPad without direct access to the web for photos...or having to shut down Safari to check your Twitter client, etc.
    I think a big miss on this article is any discussion of content creation capabilities of netbooks and iPad. Kindle and Dead Tree books don't allow extensive content creation, the iPad has limited capabilities, but netbooks open up a whole range of creative possibility. Also, it's obvious this article is geared toward college students, not middle or high school.
