PlayAway Books are like little iPods that contain books such as John Grisham's "The Broker" and Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code". They come with ear buds and a lanyard to wear around your neck so people can still see what you're reading or in this case listening to. I'm still a fan of regular books, but these would be good for traveling.
Implications - Consumers are constantly looking for methods of entertainment which are easy to transport. E-readers and products like this PlayAway Audio Book are popular for their compact and light qualities, which allow them to be transported easily. The tech industry will continue to see a surge of miniature modes of entertainment which busy consumers can easily carry and use.
