2011 The Year of the Ebook

Last year was pretty good – but, I am betting that THIS year is the year that ebooks really get traction and take off. There are like 100 ebook readers / tablet computers coming out from Dell, Toshiba, Apple, Sony, HP, Asus, Acer, etc… this will be what the ebook needs to go mainstream. Tablets are outselling notebook computers at the moment – and there really is only one decent tablet on the market at the moment – the Apple iPad.

Imagine when there are 100 types of tablet?

Ebooks are here to stay, and they are going to crush the paperback market. There are so many reasons ebooks are better. Look at Mike Fook’s post about 50 reasons ebooks are better than books.

Ebooks in Thailand are just starting to take off. I expect because Thailand is a great travel destination, that many tourists don’t want to lug around paperbacks and they’re buying Kindle’s or other ereaders to read their ebooks on.

What do you think?

Do you have a Kindle yet?

An iPad?

Another tablet?
