Amazon Kindle has been so successful that it has made a few companies change their mind about the potential of the e-book industry as a whole. When Amazon entered the market, Sony Reader was dominating the market but it was not making any headway. The Sony device was sold, but it was not exactly earth shattering and mainstream. Amazon came in and changed the perception that was out there about e-book readers. Unlike most of its rivals, Kindle is easy to use and decent on the eye. And it saves you money (even though we still complain about high e-book prices). It’s safe to say that Kindle is doing better than most people expected it to.
What Kindle has done is open the eyes of companies such as Apple and Microsoft. Both companies are planning to introduce their own tablets in the very near future. That would mean the device will have two mighty new competitors to contend with. So here is an interesting question: with all the information available on iTablet and Microsoft Courier, which one in your opinion has the best chance of dethroning Kindle?[poll=21]
