Some interesting facts gleaned from the link I'll give at the lower part of this page:
Ereader sales have increased 105% over last year.
NOOK Color has ousted the Kindle as the top-selling ereader; this being the first that Amazon has lost that distinction.
Rumor is that Amazon will release its own version of a tablet device in a few months.
If Amazon comes out with a tablet and it's priced right I will have to try to determine if our 10 yr old son would be better off with the Amazon product or with the NOOK Color that tops his Christmas wish list...
