eReaders and the Digital Publishing Market

In late 2007, Amazon released its first eReader, the Kindle. The electronic reading device was an instant success as users didn’t need a computer or laptop to download reading material and transfer to their devices. Users could simply download eBooks from Amazon’s online book collection wirelessly over a cellular data network. Over the last five years virtually all the major consumer electronic vendors have eReaders within their product portfolios. Nevertheless, with the rise of the media tablet era and other key factors could spell the end of eReaders? ABI research provides an overview of the eReader market with key trends and regional forecasts for eReader and media tablet shipments, revenues, and ASPs. Furthermore, the study also presents key market figures for eBooks, eMagazines, and eNewspapers. The final section of the report provides an overview of eReader manufacturers and digital publishers.
