The textbook of the future: Nature News:

Nature News has done a piece on the suitability of ebook devices for use for e-textbooks: http://www.nature.com/news/2009/0904...l/458568a.html

Quote:
The resulting proliferation of new models — none of which is yet a sure winner — is being shaped by the interplay of at least three forces: new e-readers and displays for viewing and interacting with the e-textbook content; new business and licensing models for delivering quality content at prices students and universities can afford; and new concepts for the content itself, and for how it is created.
They also made editorial commentary: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal...l/458549b.html

Quote:
...new technology is not limited to delivering the same type of content in new formats. E-textbooks are part of a much larger technological shift in the nature of teaching and learning. As is typical on the Internet, it is users who are driving some of the most popular innovations. Although the large publishing houses are understandably taking their time to consider how best to connect to new media, teachers and students, unconstrained by the need to protect jobs and revenues, are further ahead in experimenting with how to make the best use of virtual environments.
