ABI Research to Host Smartbooks and Media Tablets Webinar

This just came across my desk. From the press release:

It will address the general question “Will Smartbooks and Media Tablets Change the Face of Mobile Computing?

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
