Apple Supplying Florida Public Schools
Apple announced today that they will be supplying iBooks to Broward County Public Schools in Florida.
"We're excited to work with Broward County to provide students with the best learning tools available," said Tim Cook, Apple's executive vice president of Worldwide Sales and Operations. "Thousands of schools across the country have improved academic achievement with the help of Apple's education solutions, and the addition of 30,000 iBooks will do much to help provide students with necessary 21st century skills."
Apple will be providing 1.33 and 1.42GHz iBooks which were just released yesterday. The news comes not long after Henrico Schools (Richmond, VA) had decided to switch from iBooks to Dells. Henrico's iBook program received much press when it was initiated in 2001. Of note, Henrico is selling the used iBooks for $50 each (no shipping offered, must show up in person)
