DETROIT (WWJ) Back-to-school shoppers, if you’re planning to buy your child a tablet — hold on a second.

“The tablet, as famous as it is, has not replaced the notebook,” said Brian Cooley with C-NET, which has put out its annual back-to-school shopping must-haves.

Cooley says most curricula is still more compatible for notebooks or laptops than tablet computers like the iPad.

So, what’s the second most important gadget for back-to-school shoppers? It’s still not a tablet, Cooley said.

“Then it’s the smart phone, that’s No. 2, because their lives are lived on these devices now, it’s really not optional — then you can consider getting them a tablet,” Cooley said.
