Apple’s sexy new iPhone launches in America today, though it won’t be over here for some time. When I blogged its announcement in January, I drew a storm of (largely critical) commentary. That notwithstanding, I am now more convinced than ever that kids will get the point of a truly pocketable, always-connected computer. The price has to come down first, but in the mobile phone industry that takes only a few months. This, and devices like it, will quickly come down to the cost of a commodity mobile today.
The big question as far as I am concerned, is how long will it take teachers to adopt these as teaching tools. Read the comments yourself, and join in the debate!
