The iPad will kill the Kindle (& Other Nonsense)

So everyone was talking about the poll that was released yesterday. I found a good post about it here, and I'm not going to make the same obvious conclusions everyone else has. Instead, I'll say this:

I don't trust the data. The poll was conducted in the immediate aftermath of the announcement. There is a good chance some respondents were still caught up in the hype, and they might change their minds as time goes by. We won't really know of the numbers are valid until after the initial release.

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."

  1. This is something I keep emphasizing, too: It’s not out yet! A lot of the proclamations we’re hearing about the iPad are just premature, a by-product of the hype. Let’s wait until the sucker’s actually available, and people are buying and trying it, before anyone starts claiming it will kill this, or replace that.
