Kindles and textbooks do not go well together unless you're reading strictly text
books. Graphs and photos just don't show up well. Don't get me wrong, I love my Kindle
, but it's for pleasure reading. IF they came up with a color version, it might work. Can't do that with e-ink, though, at least at this point.
For an English major (or other language) and Kindle is a no-brainer. For science, it's not so clear cut. Frankly, I'd go for the phone and leave the ipad for fun. I have a friend who got one and it's too big to be really useful, and frankly I wonder if the phone can't do more.
I'll be getting an Android phone myself. Not willing to switch to AT&T for a phone other carriers can emulate (and some say beat).
Quote from Reebles
I keep going back and forth, if I bought an Ipad I would not have to buy a kindle to read textbooks or review books, and the Ipad is $29.99/month (unlimited) with no contract.
It seems like it may cost more overall to get an Iphone and kindle rather than an Ipad. While in school I would not necessarily need to buy 3G coverage because there is Wifi at school.
How much is a typical plan on an Iphone if you don't mind me asking?
