The use of light, portable devices such as iPads whose reading angle is readily changed is radically different to reading on a desktop or laptop. However, it would be naive to view this as mere evolution. Rather, such devices permit reading activity to more closely mirror paper. A light, keyboardless device can be used in many different locations and orientations. This paper reports an infrastructure for supporting reading on multiple slate devices using a single cloud-based system to provide for numerous configurations.
