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.
