in a report about the possibilty of a new google tablet - their version of the ipad - an expert was saying that the tablets are jacks of all trades and masters of none.
that a new tablet has to give purchasers a reason to buy a tablet.
the amazon kindle on the other hand knows what it is and what it does: it allows you to read books on it.
this is what the expert said.
'The Amazon Kindle e-reader, however, is perfectly clear in what it can do, how it can do it and taps into an activity that most of the world’s population are already literate with.’
indeed because if they were not then the kindle would be pretty useless to them.
