Kindle 3

Now that the holiday buying season is over, Amazon has announced that the Kindle 3 is its best-selling product of all time having passed the latest Harry Potter novel. Amazon is expecting to sell more than 8 million Kindles this year. Clearly the price drop helped spark sales, but the question I have is whether an e-reader can be successfully used at a university. While various universities have been experimenting with e-readers, nothing definite seems to have emerged as to their viability outside of experimental or pilot programs.
