iPad No Threat to E-Reader

The rise of the tablet computer hasn’t undermined the popularity of the e-reader, as you might expect. In fact, it’s bolstered it. According to research firm In-Stat, global shipments of e-book devices will nearly triple over the next few years, growing from 12 million units this year to 35 million in 2014. Driving that growth: The needs of the avid reader for whom the reading experience offered by devices like the single-purpose Amazon (AMZN) Kindle take precedence over the multimedia experience offered by devices like Apple’s (APPL) iPad. And, of course, falling e-reader price points. In-Stat says we’re likely to see a $99 model arrive at market by the end of the year.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
