On ZDnet.com there is an interesting article about the possible / probable approaching end of the dedicated e-book reader. Main reason is the recent price drop, of which I knew nothing, since over here there was none, and the release of the iPad and general multifunctional devices like smartphones.
Would you like to read a book on your iPhone or Android? Or on your laptop? I wouldn’t. According to the article’s author the “Millenials” would go for iPad, phones etc, whereas the “Boomers” as the majority of hardcore reader types would stick with the reader for now.
I don’t agree, why would a “Millenial” – if he is a reader – put up with a tiny display and / or more inconvenient “ink technology if he can have something better?
