Tablet PC the wave struck eBook industry chain falls apart

According to media reports, the global pc tablet market fast, and has created a digital "victim" - digital book reader (or e-book reader). Reuters published an analysis of the article said that, due to the tablet users shunt reader consumers, many manufacturers in the industry chain of the global reader shuttered, the rest of the E-Ink is a hard to support, at the same time, the reader has also been weak technological innovation questioned.

E-Ink holding company in Taiwan, for example, the main business for the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook reader monochrome ink screen. Experienced five consecutive years of high growth, the end of 2011, reduce the business of the company, monthly income plunged 91 percent within two months. Sriram Peruvemba, chief marketing officer of E-Ink "(Reader) market plummeted." Reader market broke from unique ink screen can be read in sunlight and low power consumption. However, the Apple ipad tablet improved home light display and power consumption, with great success, in addition launched iPad Mini small size means that the reader has become a transitional technology.

Reuters pointed out, this technology turnover, like the piano replaced the harpsichord, and more feature-rich iPhone replaces Apple's iPod music player. Such as E-Ink reader manufacturers are looking for new ways to sell their technology, and even some companies to close down. The Pew Research Center poll shows that digital book readers in the United States over the age of 30, less than half of the reader. Readers under the age of 30, the proportion is less than a quarter. The analysts also lowered their forecasts. In December last year, IHS iSuppli predicted that by 2014, digital book reader deliveries to 43 million units. Last month, the agency modify the predictive value of deliveries to reduce by two-thirds.

However, the future of E-Ink "bet" longer ordinary consumers, but schools and other areas. E-Ink schools as a key engine of growth. E-Ink has already begun for the classroom to increase functionality, such as a "master" control the students to read the page which prevent students from prematurely read the answer page. This month, Amazon also announced a plan, including discounts, in order to develop the school market, allegedly 80% of the core textbooks in the United States has launched the iPad digital edition. Some educational institutions will invest to buy digital books, but they will not necessarily buy reading devices such as the tablet pc mit GPS. Singapore, for example, a university library has decided to purchase digital books will be 95% of the budget. Kindle reader in Singapore does not officially on sale, which means that these digital book is not aimed at one a reader.

E-Ink is not only emerging tablet computer siege ink screen innovation fatigue. E-Ink also want to own ink screen technology appear in more equipment outside reader. Recent years, its display has appeared on the watch, the Samsung phone keypad as well as U disk. Japan, an E-Ink display success stories of 2011, a major earthquake and tsunami, the other based on the display of power supply stopped working, the E-Ink display is still normal. E-Ink, chief marketing officer Sriram Peruvemba participated in various exhibitions around the world, to showcase a variety of its own ink screen prototype device, such as a music stand, embedded traffic lights display. CEO of E-Ink Liu Cheng said: "I told the staff, within five years, the non-reader ink screen applications will reach the level of the reader."

Analysts believe that it is justified. Jonathan Melnick, Lux Research analyst, said: "We have adjusted the expectations of the reader, but we continue to believe that this technology has a future market, not only with the tablet mit android E-Ink said, has not been The industry trends disturbed ink screen industry will play a central role in the future. CEO Liu Cheng said: "In our new products, we will no longer become a parts supplier."

Teacher Alva Taylor of Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College E-Ink as a case for teaching, he believes another successful E-Ink is unlikely, a technology company looking for applications and solutions, the very low probability of success. "
