Less than a year, last may, watched the Christmas + New Year holiday season and commented on how eReaders were becoming commonplace. I have also taken note of the appearance of the s in Tablet PCin the avatar of the iPad.

There have been many discussions about what will be the preferred for people reading device. eReaders provide the family experience of reading a printed book. Offers the possibility of even curl with one in bed. It contained his collection of choice of books and he was able to obtain the last downloaded bestseller, if that is what you wanted. The presentation was black and white screen ePaper that gave him the appearance of printed paper. It also had the form of a typical book factor.

On the other hand the Tablethave the electronic screen we are used when working with equipment (desktop or laptop or even netbooks!), usually with backlit LCD screen. The format is show all, practical and suitable for reading books about them. In general, it would be useful for the consumption of all types of media, including video of the network. Most of us are used to read the sample. The generation that is growing with computer screens in their games, their laptops in class or netbooks for access to e-mail and surf, this is as natural networks!

eReaders are a continuation of our book of reading experience. So we are accustomed to it. It wouldn't be no barrier to his continued acceptance. But, being the equivalent of the printed book, they also inherit the limitations of the printed book, containing static content. There is no way to integrate dynamic content, such as video, animation etc which could add new dimensions to learning and the reading experience.

S of Tabletwhich, essentially, teams can add these dimensions to the learning experience. At least for textbooks, which are aimed at the teaching of concepts, ideas etc. that the iPad should be noted in terms of value delivered. For the student community, that are accustomed to reading and learning through your computer screen this easily could be the device that is useful for students. You don't need to carry the bagful of textbooks either. Textbooks could cost a lot these days too, something like $50 to $100 per article. The Tablet can be really profitable alternative too. Electronic versions of textbooks (could actually be more added value) cost much less.

The latest findings tell us, however, tell us that consumers would like both in many cases. Both are set for huge growth. Tablets are set to grow to 130% to 24 million units this year. The eReaders will also grow by 50% to 15.5 million units. But the fact that many consumers may want both devices is provided by another study said 28% of Kindle owners will buy a Tablet during the year and 23% of Tablet PC owners want a Kindle. 40% Of iPad owners want a Kindle. Both, it seems that it will be around for some time!
