Readers Are Devouring Apple Book Apps

On BusinessWeek, there's a story titled, "Readers Are Devouring Apple Book Apps." Demand for digital book applications on Apple devices gives developers and publishers fresh ways to make money—a mixed blessing for Amazon. Do you agree?

How many books have you read on your iPhone or iPod touch? If you already have a smartphone that is capable of being an e-book reader (or e-reader), then why would you go out and invest several hundred dollars for a dedicated e-book reader like the Kindle, Nook, or QUE? Does it really make sense?

With the new Apple iPad on the horizon, the digital book industry may get revolutionized as devices like the iPad offer much more capabilities that extend beyond traditional e-book readers. Having a multimedia interface and Internet access on your iPad could change the way consumers and even health care professionals access both work-related and personal books.
