re: Amplify Tablet Hopes To Rule Schools
Amplify looks expensive, there is a $99 yearly subscription fee on top
of the $299 as well as requiring 1000 unit purchase to get the $299
pricing and 2 year commitment on the subscription (and that is the
introductory price for the basic package). I think that Educational
Resources' LearnPad looks to be the best Classroom Tablet Solution to
date and is only $299 with no fees.

re: Amplify Tablet Hopes To Rule Schools
I think this is a good product, the idea seems good. It seems unlikely schools would be able to purchase one for each student, so I wonder how they would allocate them. Would it be like the old computer lab of my day, where the 20 or so tablets would just be housed in one room and different sets of students could use them throughout the day (presumably not to play Oregon Trail)?

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
