For years there have been claims that e-books would inevitably do away with traditional print reading. It hasn’t happened yet and is not likely to in the near future. Let’s face it, some folks still prefer the smell of a real book.

Still, with the release of Amazon’s Kindle, the e-book industry got the kick in the pants it needed.

Kindle is gearing up to release the next generation of its e-book reader, which will cost less and have more features, but it looks like a new e-book technology coming over the horizon might just replace even the popular Kindle.

How about reading books on your cell phone?

Apple’s iPhone is leading the pack in this new advance on the e-book market. If that doesn’t have the people behind the Amazon Kindle shaking in their boots, I don’t know what will. Stats for E-Book Ubiquity Trending: Older & Chilly
