De toekomst van ebooks (revisited)

"I doubt Amazon will stick to a limited purpose Kindle, as the company sells music, movies, audiobooks, and other media. If Amazon made an iTouch-like product, it could sell all these formats to device owners." Bovenstaand citaat maakt enigszins duidelijk wat een groot probleem van de huidige ebookreaders zou kunnen zijn. Want, de ontwikkeling staat nog maar in de kinderschoenen. Zo maar een vraag: zouden klanten / consumenten bereid zijn om zo'n groot bedrag (honderden euro's) te betalen voor een apparaat, dat eigenlijk maar een ding kan? Zeker de jeugd wil nog zo veel meer. Ze hebben muziek, willen spelletjes spelen, liefst hun mail controleren, foto's maken en ja, zo af en toe ook wel eens een boek lezen. Zou de ontwikkeling van de apparatuur dus niet veel meer de kant uit moeten van multifunctionele hardware? Bij de iPod lukte dat indertijd wel, het was zelfs een gigantisch succes, maar nu zullen er weinig muziekspelers meer verkocht worden die alleen maar muziek kunnen afspelen. "Apple has iPod iTouches already which can read books using various apps (including Kindle for iPhone and iTouch) that are free or inexpensive." Ook het ontwikkelen van een standaardformaat zou enorm helpen bij het vermarkten van ebooks en readers. Er zijn wel degelijk ontwikkelingen, maar wat mij betreft ook heel veel onzekerheden. En dat maakt (ik heb het al wel eens eerder hier gezegd) dat ik voorlopig even afwacht welke kant het opgaat. Zal de Kindle (de reader van Amazon) de Betamax (de videospeler die het aflegde tegen het VHS systeem) van de ebookreaders worden? U leest het hier.
