eReaders vs. iPads?
In a post on Media Bistro’s GalleyCat, Jason Boog writes about The Big Money’s Untethered 2010 tablet conference today:
Bob Nell, Sony Electronics’ director of business development in the digital reading business division, thought that eReaders would survive. On an airplane recently, he spotted one iPad passenger watching a movie on an iPad and a Sony Reader user reading a book. “She was watching her own movie in the theater of the mind,” Nell said. “It’s a different kind of experience, and a different kind of product.”
The iPad user can watch a “theater of the mind” movie too, if they use iBooks or the Kindle app. The Sony Reader user can’t watch an actual movie… Sounds like a win for the iPad to me.
