Submission + - $99 Moby Tablet as textbook alternative (engadget.com) 1

Taco Cowboy writes: Marvell's Moby tablet will be an "always-on, high performance multimedia tablet" capable of full Flash support and 1080p HD playback and supporting WiFi, Bluetooth, FM radio, GPS and both Android and Windows Mobile platforms for maximum flexibility.

Marvell's Moby tablet could eliminate the need for students to buy and carry bound textbooks and an array of other tools.

Actual size and weight vary by configuration, but Marvell's ultra thin and light Moby tablet is expected to hold a full year's worth of books but weigh less than half of one typical textbook.

    What they mean: "Marvell's Moby tablet could eliminate the ability for students to share and resell bound textbooks." Or does Marvell plan to fund development of free textbooks on Wikibooks.org and market these textbooks to K-12 school districts and to universities?
