ebooks and ereaders getting a boost
There are some very specific reasons as to why the sale of ebooks will increase by great numbers by the end of this year as experts predict. One of the main reason for this is going to be because of the release of such media devices and electronic readers such as the iPad that is definitely going to encourage and boost the sales of ebook all over the world by the time 2010 is over, and this growth is predicted to be by over eighty percent which is surely a huge leap considering that there are still many dedicated people around the world who would rather read out of printed paper than electronic pages.
It is going to be the tablet PC’s like the iPad already mentioned that come with many kinds of multimedia features out of which the ability to read ebooks is one of them, however research groups like DisplaySearch and the likes claim that even those devices that do not have many other media functions except being able to read ebooks will also become popular as more people around the world begin to get used to the idea of reading books through electronic devices. Already last year, this boost in ebooks sale begun and this can largely be credited to the popularity of devices like the Amazon Kindle and also in fact the Sony Reader, there were apparently five million units of epaper displays that were sold and shipped to various places around the world.
Even though many other ereader device companies around the world had probably feared that the iPad would end up being a direct threat to their sales of ebooks, as it turns out with the release of the iPad, the awareness of the ebooks and epaper display is made on a wider level. With the awareness of these ebooks and e printed content made more popular, there will be many people who will be drawn to ereaders equally and especially after they discover that reading ebooks is actually not that bad an idea. ereaders definitely have many benefits that an iPad cannot achieve especially if one is interested solely in ereading, this includes the fact that these exclusive ereading devices are very light and they consume hardly any power but more than any of that is also the fact that these devices make ereading more easy than tablet PCs such as iPad that is meant to have other media features and functions as well.
So the release of the iPad might actually directly influence the sale of the ereaders and ebooks as well all over the world.
