Forrester Research expects ereader sales to double in 2010. What
choices are consumers being given today? This session will get you up
to speed on what’s come out in the last year and how and where
consumers will be using the devices. We’ll also explain why the iPhone
and Kindle – major players in 2009 – will see some serious
competition in the coming months as waves of Android devices arrive in
the marketplace. We’ll look at trends in ebook formats as well as the
the emergence of multi-device ecosystems like the Kindle platform and
Google Editions.
