Ebook Reader and Tablet Ownership Rises

The number of people owning e-book readers and tablets rose from 10 to 19% in the weeks from mid-December to the beginning of January - says a recently published report by Pew Internet Project. Ebook readers and tablets enjoyed this nice boost thanks in most part to holiday shoppers and new owners. It is estimated that now almost 30 percent of adults have considered owning at least one of these devices which was up 18%. Another reason for this rise in the ownership of e book readers and tablets is the fact that a few top manufacturers dropped the prices of their electronic readers such as with the Nook and Kindle, making the devices more affordable and attractive to many in this slow economy we live in. The study also shows us that women dominate ownership of e-readers as 21% of women own an e-book reader in comparison to just 16% of men. Before the study, those numbers were 11% and 9% respectively. Amazon is poised to release the results of its fiscal 2011 4th quarter today (January 31st) so that we can see exactly what type of impact the low priced Kindle Fire has made.
