Is There an e-Book Reader in Your Future?
Forrester Research forecasts the US e-Reader market to grow from 1 million units to 12 million by 2012 but an e-Book reader is not in my future. I'm liking the mini-laptop as an alternative to largely tethered, single purpose gizmos. If the purchase of an e-Book reader is in your future, for yourself or as a Christmas stocking stuffer, you might want to check out Publishers Weekly's comparison chart of popular and forthcoming devices. Do note that Publishers Weekly includes the Acer Netbook in Digital Publishing: E-Reader Scorecard. [JH]
