Apple's Tablet could boost print

Book publishers already are lining up, and magazines and newspapers could be next: Apple is negotiating with several media companies to provide content for its Tablet -- or to access original content from the new, multitouch tablet.

"While the idea of print on the Tablet is enticing, it's nothing the Kindle or any E-Ink device couldn't do," comments the Gizmodo blog. However, "Microsoft's Courier [is] far away and Kindle stuck with relatively static E-Ink.

"The eventual goal is to have publishers create hybridized content that draws from audio, video and interactive graphics in books, magazines and newspapers."
