Fellow NAPCO blog Appletell links to a story on iPadInsider (which in turn links to a story on Paid Content) which offers a first look at what “e-books” might look like on the iPad, courtesy of Penguin. I quotate “e-books” because I don’t think I would necessarily call what Penguin had to display “e-books” in the traditional sense.
This is very exciting technology and these types of books are worthy of a higher price.
I do have a couple of issues.
- Kids need to color on paper with a crayon or marker.
- As a portable Travel Guide, I think the iPad is too big. A 6 inch screen would be easier to carry around.
