New Podcast: Kindle Gives Amazon More Bang for Less Bucks

One of the podcasts I follow a weekly series from PBS Media Shift called 4 Minute Roundup. This week's podcast is on the Kindle obviously. (Actually, it's last week's podcast. I missed it the first time around.)

In this week's 4MR podcast I look at the surprising success of the Amazon Kindle ereader in the wake of the hit Apple iPad tablet. While many people expected the iPad to impact the ereader market, instead the major players cut prices and Kindle sales tripled in the past month. Plus, Amazon announced a new line of Kindles that will cost even less -- with no touch screen or color. Book publishing veteran and MediaShift contributor Dan Brodnitz talked with me about Amazon's successful sell-everywhere strategy.

Check it out.

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."
