Evans points out that other eReaders are moving toward the iPad model.
Barnes and Noble today introduced new versions of its Nook-branded eReading software for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Nook is also available for PC and Android systems.Apple will soon be selling 7-inch iPads, in fact. They’re designed primarily for text books and will appeal to schools. Apple is also extending its presence to new markets overseas.
The free app joins Amazon's own Kindle app, Apple's own iBooks app, both Marvel and DC's big comic-reading apps and a bevy of smaller eBook-reading apps on the iTunes store.
Other companies are introducing new ideas. Nook has a LendMe feature, another step in eBook publishing.
While Evans noted:
Amazon recently claimed to have sold more eBooks than physical books, but few took this claim seriously -- the company is clearly pushing its own Kindle device.He also said:
Random House CEO, Markus Dohle expects eBooks to make up over 10 percent of the publisher's revenue by next year.You can link over to see what Evans recommends the Kindle do to compete with the iPad and what the rumors are concerning the Android Kindle. What do you predict for the Book eWorld?
