Lightbulb What slots will look like in 5 years time...

CNN are presently running an article on the new Kindle DX newspaper and book reader being unveiled by Amazon.

Amazon's newest Kindle takes aim at newspapers

Amazon Kindle DX 9.7" display - Wireless Reading Device Update!!!

It looks to me a sure fire thing that slot manufacturers plus the Cryptologic's, Microgaming's and Boss Media's of the online gaming world will want to but their content onto this and similar devices hard drives and turn them into slots and virtual table games.
They're already on mobile phones and Blackberry's of course but for us oldies the screen ain't big enough !!!

Why have a big box when all the content you need, plus email and internet are on something you can carry around in your hands.

I give the big box system of delivery 10 years at max.
What do you slots people think ?

I would have though the big box system is also a means of engineering in robustness - and with the various accounting systems there also needs to be bit of free space inside for hardware etc. Not to mention the newer, flashier displays are probably more processor intensive than your average magazine/book/newspaper that would currently be displayed on a Kindle DX (the size of a magazine/newspaper, but only half as portable!).
