Seven days from now Apple will be hosting an event in New York City at the Guggenheim Museum where they willl be holding an "education announcement", which we can only assume will be their entrance into the textbook market (New iPad ?)
When Apple launched the iPad two years ago, they also unveiled iBooks, which to be honest has not been as much as a success as they probably thought it would be Amazon dominates the eBook market. But what if Apple could start getting schools to buy their iPads in bulk and get teachers to tie their course material into iBooks? That changes the game completely. Plus you can only imagine how eager Apple would be to sell schools several thousand iPads at a time, with insurance thrown on top.
