Last month I wrote about the Nook, the new ebook reader from Barnes and Nobel.
If you’re at all interested in ebooks, and if you’re not you probably should be, Joe’s observations on ebook readers and the ebook side of publishing are worth following.
His suggestion that an ebook reader with a slot for an iPhone connection is an interesting one. His notion that such a device would cost around $100 is moving the price in the right direction.
Allowing an ebook reader to make use of the wireless connection provided by cell phones may actually be moving us toward an ebook that’s relatively cheap and maybe sturdy enough to, eventually, use at the beach or, carefully, in the bath tub – my personal idea of perfection in such a gadget.
