Digital Paper device

I argued in an earlier post for schools to invest in desktop, not laptop computers. I don’t like laptops because they are heavy, expensive and altogether too nickable. But what when mobile computers become as small, light and inexpensive as an exercise book?

One technology that will make this possible is digital paper. This device, to be launched by Philips and Sony later this year is a step towards computers you will need to treat with about as much respect as a biro. Full press release here, if you want more details.
