This device could be seen as a computer for marginal computer users. This is a transitional device. By that I mean, it is not the iPhone nor is it a laptop/desktop. It is a transitional computer of sorts. So, I hypothesize that some people will buy it because they have disposable income and want it. Others might buy because it is “all the computer they’ll need” because they don’t do intense tasks and work on a computer anyway. So, it is a device that will adequately allow them to read books, surf the web, check email, download music, see pictures of grandkids, play games, and continue to move into the digital age. Also, it has a simple operating system that wouldn’t require much of a learning curve to use. It can bring people into more of a digital and computer age that aren’t fully in there yet.
How big of a phone holder will we need for this???? I mean you better make sure your belt is tight on your pants or…..
I love the iPhone…I use Kindle for iPhone and saved $259 for the Kindle (though it holds up to 1800 books). I am reading about four books on the iPhone at the moment and I like it – even though you can only read a paragraph or two on the scree at a time it makes for easy and convenient reading. I think this new iPad will also have a reader but hey that will be a mighty big book.. LOL
You missed my birthday but if you save up and hurry you can buy me this huge reader. :-)
