Sony cuts e-reader prices

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2010

Sony is helping to heat up the e-book reader price wars. It has now dropped the prices on its three current models. The Pocket Edition was $169 and is now $149, while the Touch Edition drops from $199 to $169, and the 3G Daily Edition is now $299 from $349.

It should be noted that this still leaves Sony a bit behind the competition: the Pocket Edition lacks WiFi unlike the similarly-priced Nook and the Daily Edition will be hard to sell even at $299.

Amazon Kindle drops to $189

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2010

Look at this. Just hours after Barnes & Noble came out with a $149 WiFi-only version of its Nook and a $199 3G Nook, here comes Amazon hitting back in a move that should cut into B&N’s sales.

Now the $259 Kindle 2, with global 3G and the 6-ink E Ink display, is now the $189 Kindle 2. Aside from that you can also enjoy free 2-day shipping. Which will you go for? A nook or a Kindle?

Barnes & Noble has announced that it will open up a self-publishing portal this summer, called PubIt!. It will give unknown authors the ability to upload and sell their material through B&N’s website and eBookstore.

Details on the compensation model (or profit split) will be announced soon. And it won’t be limited to the Nook either. Almost any e-reader, tablet or PC will be able to get in and make purchases, so the potential audience for the author is large.

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2010

I don’t know about you, but when I’m shopping for ebook readers, Target isn’t the first place on my list to look for them. But hey why not? Barnes & Noble offer the Nook eBook reader at Best Buy stores. And rumor is that the Kindle eBook reader might be getting ready to sit on Target shelves. The rumored date is April 25th.

It will be interesting to see what happens with sales between the Kindle, Nook and iPad. Maybe the Kindle will show up at Walmart too before too long.

The American Transportation Security Administration has informed travelers via it’s blog, that when traveling to, from, and within the USA, portable computers smaller than “the standard sized laptop” don’t have to be removed from their bags.

So what is the standard sized laptop? Well, they don’t really say. However, Kindles, iPads, Sony Readers, Nooks, and “Net Books” are named as being exempt from the requirement to unbag your computer for the X-ray scanners. Of course, there’s the disclaimer that staff might want to take a second look at odd-looking devices, but for the most part you can leave that e-reader in your bag.

Kobo eReader for $150

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on March 25th, 2010

Kobo has unveiled their own eBook reader and it looks like a good affordable option for those who don’t want to buy a Kindle or Nook. The Kobo eReader lacks 3G, but there is a lot to like here. Just look at that quilted, vinyl back and you can skin the face with a cloth or leather facade. Most of the buttons are on the side because you have a blue navigational pad in front. It comes equipped with 1GB of storage, but will handle a 4GB SD card.

The device supports EPUB or PDF transfered over USB, and you can sync via Bluetooth across devices loaded with Kobo’s app. This one should be pretty popular.

Samsung says the E6 will be $299 at launch. No news about the 10-inch E10 or the E61. Just that they “may be coming soon,”. The question is do you prefer the E6 over the Nook?

Lexi E-book reader

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2010

You’ll notice that they called this one Lexi, not sexy. It is in no way sexy and could never be called sexy no matter how many beers you’ve downed while reading your favorite book. Lexi is from Audiovox/RCA, who showed her off at CES 2010.

She won’t turn very many heads in the crowded e-book reader market. She features a 6-inch display, 800 x 600 resolution, 2GB internal memory, and a battery that will last up to 7000 page turns. We doubt that it will take on the Kindle or the Nook.
