Apple – Amazon War

The coming of the Kindle made a huge impact on publishers, authors and all the users around the globe. Kindle as we all know is an Amazon product which already has revived the book industry. Before the coming of the print culture, the society used to listen to ballads and folklore along with poetry. Then came in the print culture which sought to revolutionize the world. And then we could say came in the Amazon Kindle which was a huge milestone for books. You could read books, listen to books, carry multiple books around with you anywhere and anytime.
By seeing the Kindle flourish, many tech firms wanted to try their hand on ebook readers.

This year is the year of ebook readers. Sony, Barnes and Nobles and now even the Apple iPad is in the market.

Apple’s iPad will yet once again change the way we read books. Recently there has even been a controversy that the iPad would be able to read out loud all books in the EPUB format, which is quite unique.

The dynamic UI along with the revolutionary iBooks store will definitely give Amazon quite a lot of heat. Amazon even owns Audible.com which provides audio books. But as the iPad would be able to read all the EPUB books, audible is sure to go down.

iPad even boasts a huge 9.7 inch screen and has signed up five of the worlds best publishers. Amazon’s kindle is only an ebook reader whereas the iPad is an all in one device. And if Apple allows the Kindle app to be there on the iPad then people could have all their already purchased ebooks on the iPad. Great , isn’t it?

Amazon would have to come up with something new in order to compete with the iPad.
