While many in the newspaper industry hold out hope that the sudden onset of e-readers will be their savior, a study out of the University of Georgia cautions, well, caution.  Professors of advertising Dean Krugman and Tom Reichert, and Barry Hollander, an associate professor of journalism in the UGA Grady College of Journalism and Mass...

Asus has already confirmed that it will be entering the booming e-reader market later this year, but one device we haven't heard much about is the purported Eee Pad. In fact, we've only heard the Eee Pad referred to in rumor form, but all of that changes today. Asus' Corporate Vice President, Eric Chen, recently confirmed to members of the... Read more...
The e-book market is hotter than ever. Amazon may have really started it, but since then Sony, Spring Design and a whole host of others have joined the party. Endless Ideas has also been a player for awhile now, but it has just recently started to gain traction. The BeBook One and BeBook Mini didn't have the feature set of some of the more... Read more...
In case you haven't heard, Apple has an even planned for the 27th of this month. No one knows for sure except for those who aren't saying, but all signs are pointing the release of the oft-rumored Apple Tablet that has been whispered about for months on end now. For those still doubting that such a product exists, you should probably have... Read more...
It's too early to tell if this is the Eee Reader that was hinted about last autumn, but there's little doubt that Asus will be joining the quickly growing e-reader market in the near future. Amazon has started something that is showing no signs of slowing, with Plastic Logic, Spring Design and a host of other... Read more...
We've heard about this one before, but now Spring Design has officially taken the wraps off of the Alex dual-screen e-reader. Based on the Android operating system, the Alex lets users search the Internet on the lower 3.5-inch color browser LCD screen while also displaying books, periodicals, and even personal documents on the paper-like 6-inch...

Amazon's Kindle DX may have made some headlines when it was announced thanks to its 9.7-inch screen, but now Sprint and Skiff plan to take the crown for offering the largest e-reader on the market. The new Skiff Reader is just over a quarter of an inch thick, yet it manages to squeeze an 11.5-inch touchscreen display into its body. The1200... Read more...
Color e-ink remains a holy grail of sorts within the e-reader industry. There's still no company out there that is producing market-ready readers with a color e-ink screen, mostly because the technology just isn't advanced enough to be created cheaply. That little fact isn't stopping Paradigm Shift from touting a new pair of color readers... Read more...
Each and every time that we think the e-ink and e-reader market has reached its temporary peak, we're reminded yet again exactly what "temporary" means. LG Display, a giant in the monitor and HDTV arena, has just signed a cross-licensing agreement with Taiwan's Prime View International Co., and it'll be buying up $30.5 million worth of that...

Remember Sony's Reader Daily Edition? Sure you do. It just went up for pre-order around a month ago, and now Sony's biggest Kindle rival finally has a shot at dethroning the king. Yes, these units have finally started to ship, but honestly it may be a bit late to take advantage of the holiday shopping crowd. The good news is that pre-orders... Read more...
Could the e-reader market possibly be any larger? Evidently so, as the booming sector just keeps booming even louder. For a society that had supposedly given up on this whole "reading" thing, there sure are a lot of companies out there vying for those eyes. While the mainstays in the bunch (Amazon, Sony and Barnes... Read more...
Although Barnes & Noble plans to begin shipping its new $259 wireless Nook ebook reader today as planned, the demand for the product has been so strong that the company won't have any models available in-store for purchase or demonstration purposes until December 7. Originally, the nation's largest bookstore retailer said it would have... Read more...
Think that Amazon's Kindle is worried about the Barnes & Noble Nook or any of the other lesser-known ereaders hitting the market lately? Guess again. Amazon has just announced that its ereader--which is viewed as a pioneer in the sector--has shattered sales records for a single month during November. And this is... Read more...
It may have been Kindle's world for awhile, but that's hardly the case any longer. Amazon has seen stiff competition from both Barnes & Noble (with its Nook) and Sony (with a variety of Readers), but the latter is finally stepping up its game in a big way. The Reader Daily Edition, which is Sony's most serious rival in the connected e-reader... Read more...
The first thing that popped to mind when Amazon issued its Kindle DX was this: textbooks! The size makes it perfect for using in place of those dusty old books, and we're guessing that most students would much rather lug around a single electronic device versus a sack full of heavy books that they'll only read a page...

Creative used to be a huge, huge name in the audio world. If we're being generous, it still has a rather large presence in the audio landscape, but it's not nearly the beast it once was. By and large, integrated audio solutions have grown sophisticated enough to be satisfactory for most, and few are springing for... Read more...
The e-reader revolution is in full swing--no doubt about that. Barnes & Noble, a bookstore, is turning on the pages that have kept its doors open for decades in order to sell its very own e-book reader, not to mention a Plastic Logic reader right beside it (QUE proReader). But are people really ready to start reading again? Seems that... Read more...
Can it be? Another e-reader? Yep, afraid so. But we have to say, we're loving the variety and the competition that's surfacing long after the Kindle wrapped the market around its finger, and the all-new QUE proReader is far from traditional. In fact, it's aimed at a different market entirely than the Nook or Kindle... Read more...
LCDs may be neat, plasmas may be entertaining and projectors may be awe-inspiring, but e-ink is the future. With the e-book reader revolution fully upon us, there's little doubt that e-ink manufacturers will be pumping out mind-blowing new modifications to improve upon the greyscale versions that we're used...

Amazon announced a new (and free!) application for the PC that lets users enjoy Kindle books on their computers. Thanks to the Kindle for PC software, Kindle books can now be read on the Kindle, Kindle DX, iPhone, iPod touch, and PC. To make it even easier to read your favorite books on various devices, Kindle for PC uses Amazon’s Whispersync... Read more...
Just when you thought the e-reader market couldn't get any wilder, it does. We've got Amazon's Kindle, Sony's Reader, Barnes & Noble's Nook, a host of other smaller devices and now this: the Entourage eDGe. The self-proclaimed "Dualbook" is sort of a e-reader/LCD book in one, with two screens that fold open and... Read more...
Watch out, Kindle. You've got some competition--real competition. While the market gets saturated with e-book readers, Barnes & Noble has stepped in to shake things up in a big, big way. Until now, every other e-reader that hit the market was just another subpar offering. No other reader has really threatened the Kindle's dominance, but... Read more...
