and i seem to remember hearing about a possible use in Strasbourg as well but i can't remember the details. i think schools are one of the places that ebooks could be the most useful, so i hope they will gain popularity there, but i suspect it won't happen until the devices are less expensive, and there is more content available.
I think many devices will be available for free the same way as cell phones with one or 2 years plan. In case if schools will purchase many eBooks they will get eBook readers for minimum price or for free.
