The next wave?
Apple computers is reportedly close to launching a new tablet computer that may replace the Kindle, the Sony Reader and a number of other portable devices. The picture above is a design concept for their reader and, according to rumors, will be available in two sizes (a 6″ screen for gaming, videos and ebooks and a larger size to run Mac applications).
I mentioned the demise of print in a past post and I’m not sure this is the piece of hardware that will make my prediction come true but it’s getting close. Portability is the key factor in the demise of print but an expensive piece of hardware like the Apple Tablet will be stolen, broken and outdated as quickly as your ipod so I’m not sure it’s the silver bullet. But it could be the precursor.
