About Nate Hoffelder (11039 Articles)

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. Hi Nate, I want to ask you a question, do you think there will be major developments in the world of ereaders next year? IMX 7, ACep, other Eink screen…? What does your intuition tell you?
    Is that I like the new kindle Oasis… but I would hate that next year there would be important news.

    • Kobo might have a single new model, and Onyx could release a couple new devices late in the fall.

      But that is all I would expect.

    • Since ereaders is a niche market, there is not much development resources going into it. So if there are new developments, it will be done slowly. The Kindle Oasis 2 will be the best overall ereader in the U.S. in two weeks.
