Yesterday I went with some colleagues to visit a Microsoft kiosk for the Surface tablet. I was most interested to see the reaction of my principal tablet evaluator, who has evaluated every tablet I have received in the last two years. However, as shown in the picture below, he was not tall enough to reach the tablet without help.
Another valued advisor has the same problem, as shown below. (Note: a reader just wrote to tell me that Apple used to have a special table where children could use devices but they have discontinued the practice.)
Pre-school children have discovered tablets, in case you have been living in Siberia. They increasingly have a view on what products they want to work/play with. A 12" step in front of the tablets would probably help impromptu evaluation and might even increase sales to "short" customers who are also future customers.
Don't take this post too seriously, but one commentator I respect believes that tablets will dominate pre-school education but not for older children (because of the lack of a keyboard).
