1/4 of college students surveyed have a tablet (3 times increase over last year’s survey)
Sixty-three percent of college students believe tablets will replace textbooks in the next five years (15 percent increase over last year’s survey.
More than a third said they intended to buy a tablet sometime in the next six months.
Nearly six in 10 students preferred digital books when reading for class, compared with one-third who said they preferred printed textbooks (a reversal from other surveys)
One must ask: What is academia doing to prepare for this?
