Tablets Are The New Textbooks

When the final numbers are in for 2010, U.S. consumers will have purchased 10.3 million tablets in the last year alone, according to Forrester Research Inc. As high school students prepare to graduate this spring, many moms and dads are already thinking about graduation presents, specifically, what their teens will need to succeed on campus.

The iPad has become the best selling gadget ever. Tablets ranging from the Superpad to a new version of the Galaxy Tab are soon to launch - which makes now the perfect time for parents and students to think about the role e-devices play in higher education, and decide whether to invest in a tablet over the more traditional laptop.
