This blog details a research project I undertook from May – July 2010 in Namibia. I took an iPad with me while traveling to Namibia to do research on the use of mobile phones by students in Namibia. At the time of my trip, the iPad had just been released in the US and was not available internationally. The goal was to put the iPad in different contexts and see the reactions and discussions it would generate.
I blogged about the experience and you can read about it at this blog here – http://www.personal.psu.edu/tia103/blogs/the_ipad_in_various_contexts/.
