Epps doesn’t think that today’s e-readers will do for e-books what the iPod did for MP3s. Even if 10 million people are toting an e-book reader at the end of next year, that’s less than 1 percent of the 110 million people who have MP3 players. And at current prices, she believes the market for e-readers will top out at 25 million.
Emphasis added by me.
I think even with significantly lower prices it won’t go beyond that.
The leisurely pace of limited eInk is well suited to the geriatric set.
And as they die off, you think the young will take their place?
They’ll have been busy reading digital books.
