Winfrey praised the iPad, which she called "amazing," in a conversation on her show last week with tech analyst Omar Wasow. She highlighted the device’s abilities as an e-reader, noting that the its touchscreen allows books to "move," and proclaimed that Apple’s new hardware would "change the way kids learn."
Totally agree with Oprah on the above. I think the iPhone OS is great for helping to make reading and learning fun for kids, and the iPad takes this up a notch.
Given her huge fanbase, it will be interesting to see how much impact Oprah’s praise will have on iPad’s already strong sales.
