“You’re going have to make sure it’s safe for people to use.”
Electronic devices like the iPhone and iPad, which have built-in sensors, can’t be sold in shops, so most people are forced to purchase an e-reader, laptop, or smartphone.
“But that’s where the problem comes in, because if you buy a pair and then they go into your pocket or whatever, they can be a threat,” Mr Gershon said.
“You’re putting a very strong, durable and easy to use electronic device into the hands of a child, or a teenager, or anyone who doesn’t have the means to buy it at the moment.”
If you’re not going to give that up, why are you spending money on a device that can be put in your pocket?
“And so it’s not the technology, it’s the price.
So it’s something you’re paying for.”
He added that the price of an e.reader can easily be more than what you could get from a smartphone or tablet.
“It’s not really about what you’re getting for your money,” he explained.
“It’s about what’s the real cost of the technology.”
When you’re a teenager or young adult, it doesn’t really matter how many times you use it.
It doesn’t matter how much money you make, it just matters that it works.
“The device itself is not worth much, but the technology is worth a lot more than that.”
For those who are concerned about the quality of their electronic device but don, or don’t need, the extra expense of purchasing an ereader, Mr Gesonsons said they could buy an iPod Touch or an Android smartphone.
