Tablets are on the rise, with the iPad, Kindle, and Nook now being followed by a litany of new Android-based devices.

What does this mean for the future of how we read and learn, and what opportunities are around the corner?

Our friends and sponsors at Pearson and Penguin will be joining us to discuss the possibilities. We'll have a roundtable discussion with pizza at NWC (412 Broadway at Canal), starting at 12.30pm and run for an hour.

The format:

  • A quick 15 minute overview of the current Pearson/Penguin digital product portfolio, business opportunities and technology challenges
  • A 45 minute open discussion/brainstorm with the community on their own experiences with books, readers and tablets – to discuss opportunities for tech innovation, potential new product and revenue models

Should be a great event for anyone developing applications for new mobile platforms.

See you there!
