Qisda expects to ship 400k e-readers in 2010

Digitimes is reporting:

Qisda currently ships more than 10,000 e-book readers per month and expects shipments to increase significantly starting in June-July to enable a yearly volume of 400,000 units in 2010, according to Qisda president and CEO Hsiung Hui.

Hsiung, who now also heads SiPix, said e-book reader prices may drop below US$200 or even US$150 in the near future, but at present tight supply of e-paper is preventing a major price drop. E-book readers will enter educational market when prices drop below US$100, he added.

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."
