Apple really could be preparing to announce something pretty extraordinary for content publishing, creation and consumption today. Its widely rumored tablet device will very likely put most other ebook reader devices out of business simply because the Apple product will be a real computer, useful for reading and for creating. It will most likely build a seamless content-creation universe that ties directly to online sales platforms. It will be a ‘publishing’ tablet really. Not just an e-book device.
I have not purchased any kind of an e-reader device, in spite of the hysteria surrounding them, specifically because of Apple’s plans. There is no way under the sun that anyone else is going to compare favorably to what Apple is about to drop on us today.
