California’s Effort to provide eBooks in place of printed textbooks

I am fascinated to follow this initiative in California to replace traditional printed textbooks with digital textbooks.  The unexplained part of it is perhaps the most interesting.  How are the students going to read/use the digital textbooks.  I could not find any released information on the methodology or hardware for reading the digital textbooks.  As in previous posts, I wonder how it will work in classes where the student needs to take notes and refer to the textbook.  Will the student be providing their own “device” or will one be provided to them?
