Thread: On the eve of the Apple iPad...
Well, a topic that hardly needs an intro since the newspapers and every other media has been ripe with stories of the imminent launch of the iPad in India around April, and at a relatively affordable price for an Apple product.
It is also no secret that the iPad has directly targeted the ebook reader market, which so far has been rules in US by Amazon's Kindle.
In India, the ebook market has not yet kindled, in part due to the pricing of gadgets such as the kindle as well as the price of ebooks themselves.
Do you think the iPad will bring the portable ebook revolution to the Indian shores or will it just make an initial wave and then subside? I think the later, because there is little infrastructure to bring newspapers and magazines in ebook formats, and because the current prices of ebooks are a bit too high for the average Indian.
