[nfbwatlk] Convention Items

It's a media device that handles music, videos, web content, and just 
about everything an iPhone does except that it's not a phone. It's a 
touchscreen device that's accessible to both the blind and the sighted 
at about $320 a unit. Once printed, I wager that the tickets will go 
fast since this is a hot technology.

Respectfully,

> Enjoy the summer, and help us continue to strengthen the NFB in
