Children have more access to cell phones than "books on paper." My answer - redefine books and deliver all educational content via handheld. Stop defining the future of our children with the tools of our past.

Barnes and Noble's response to the Kindle: The Nook.

It uses the Android operating system (Google's mobile OS) and can install 3rd party Android Apps. It also has an MP3 player but does not have built in text to speech (so no UDL here) -
