Here’s an interesting theory about the economical impact the new Kindle 2.0 will have on the comic book industry or the publishing industry if you care to expand it even further. Briefly scanning the article, I was thrilled to read that industry leaders in the field of comics are exploring the possibility of using e-devices. That would be awesome. But check this out, in the article there is yet another rumor/talk about Apple creating a e-device:
“Do you think Apple’s going to let Amazon have hegemony over that method of delivery, over that level of content? If they can deliver hi-def movies on a little iPod, do you think they’re not going to very quickly figure out how to make color, non-movable images appear on a screen?” Cunningham said.
“If, as the rumor is going around now that one of Apple’s big innovations they’re looking for in fall ’09 is a seven-by-nine iPod Touch, which is essentially Kindle sized, that’s going to happen faster than it’s going to happen sooner.”
Can you imagine a seven-by-nine color screen that can read comics? Or displaying those nice covers of your ebook library? I would be in heaven. This would be so awesome.
Have a nice weekend.
