No one wants an ereader

A few days ago I blogged about peak ereader and how one big English bookshop chain had stopped stocking Kindles.

So, Is it really the end for the ereader?

I think so. A search on ebay reveals a lot of second hand Kobos, Sonys and Kindles but no new devices or third party cheap asian devices.

The cheapest I could find was a refurbished Kobo for fifty bucks - as a comparison on the same day I could get a new end of range 7" android tablet for an extra ten bucks -from Telstra of all people.

The market has voted - no one wants them ...
