iPad helps Kindle sales

From the Amazon boards, here's an interesting article that states Amazon currently has 76% of the ebooks market (and encouragingly for authors, "digital book sales via the Kindle store are on track to grow 195% to $701 million in 2010"). One in five people buying Kindle books don't own a Kindle device. The article suggest that the iPad and iPhone apps are helping to drive sales of Amazon's ebooks.


  1. /very interesting and not surprising... after you get used to reading a few on your iPad you realize it's worth it having a dedicated reader after all

  2. I will confess I'd love to have an iPad, but mostly just for reading graphic novels. Overall I'm quite happy with reading on the Kindle!
