What has failed as big as Sony wants to start the world’s largest Amazon bookstore. Today, we mention the hardware flow of e-books, which could eventually prevail.
Instead, you have a light board in your pocket that hides hundreds of romn. This is what the new product from the American online store Amazon.com looks like.
The company introduced it today in New York. The mobile device for e-books and newspapers is called Kindle and the company offers it for 399 USD (approx. 7,500 hp). Books and newspapers can also be downloaded via the wireless device with which the device is equipped.
According to some analysts, this could open up a new market in conjunction with multimedia playback in one device.
The idea of bringing this book into electronic media has been on the market for some time, but overwhelming digital music and videos have pushed it on the way to users. Sony sold it to Sony Reader, but it didn’t have a paperback imprint.
And, for example, for five years now, a competition for the production of electronic books from so-called electronic paper can be run near our borders – in Drany, Germany.
First, two CNET Web sites said Amazon wanted to sell more mobile books. Amazon did not immediately respond to questions about this.
Electronic books are still the fringes of the market, according to analyst Scott Devitt of Stifel Nicolaus. According to him, the most important thing is that the solution from Amazon starts to tell me where the development will take. As a significant significance, the variant has a playfulness of music and video together with books and newspapers in one universal portable device.
Amazon started the career as a web bookstore. According to CNET’s website, which provides reviews and information from the world of technology, the Amazon stream carries the Kindle am Wi-Fi access to its e-bookstore.
According to CNET, the Kindle is connected to headphones so that audio books can be listened to, and its own e-mail address. This allows the owner to download the electronic version of The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
If Amazon gives it a lot of publicity, it will be a source of market growth, analyst Devitt said. CNET said it had signed contracts with Amazon for 50 and 100 days. “When you think that you can have all your newspapers with you, especially if you download and store them, it could be a huge market,” Reuters was quoted as saying.
