LG bet on e-reader growth

M.B. Choi, VP of LG Display's epaper division, is optimistic about the growth of the ereader device market. From the Reuters interview:

"I think the iPad won't be a threat, but will actually have a positive impact on ereader market," M.B. Choi, vice president of LG Display in charge of its electronic paper division, said at the Reuters Global Technology Summit in Seoul.

"With iPad, Apple will boost consumer awareness of ereaders and boost digital content, which will help the market's overall growth."

LG Display, whose electronic panels are used in the Sony Reader and Skiff, forecast the global ereader market would grow between 76-78 percent this year to above 8 million units.

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."
