The problem is, some of these ipad textbooks can be up to 3 gig in size.

Can anyone say: '16-32 gig Ipad is not big enough?'

I always thought of the Ipads as having 16-32 gig way too small for a consumption device.

These new Ipad textbooks absolutely do not scale to the hard drive size of current Ipads.
I seriously doubt that the Ipad 3 will make a significant jump in size either.

Are school desks going to be outfitted with plugins now?

I am not an Apple fan but these textbooks look pretty slick.

However, I very much doubt schools will adopt this technology, especially if you consider that the laptop and smartphone in this day and age is still heavily underutilized at schools. It's absolutely ridiculous.

I'm not too tech savvy, but wouldn't this be an ideal cloud solution? The students essentially use the iPad like a workstation and download bits and pieces as necessary from the cloud?
