Students Not So Hot on Kindle

A stunning 60% stopped using the devices. Maybe a more generic devices - like a tablet - would be more integrated into their lives than a single purpose Kindle. That could be an iPad, an android tablet or even the Nook e-reader or rumored Amazon tablet.

Mixed Reviews in Study of Kindle Use

A study of student use of the Kindle DX at the University of Washington gave the device decidedly mixed reviews, The Seattle Times reported. The study involved first-year graduate students in computer science and engineering -- students who are presumably comfortable with digital information. But seven months into the study, 60 percent of the students had stopped regularly using their Kindles for academic reading. Although the Kindle has note-taking capability, the study found many students preferred to use paper to take notes on what they read on their Kindles.
