New Handheld Devices Spur Content Sales
Simon & Schuster, Random House, AOL Time Warner and Hyperion are among the publishers making a growing number of front- and backlist titles available as e-books in four formats: Palm, Gemstar, Adobe and Microsoft Reader (which works on the Pocket PC as well). North notes that literary fiction, romance, SF and business titles are all enjoying handheld success. "There's an interesting debate," North added, "as to whether the consumer will ultimately prefer a dedicated device, which is likely to have a larger screen, or a general-purpose device like a Palm, which you carry with you."
Whatever hardware ultimately prevails, the future of the once-declared-dead e-book seems a bit brighter. North said HC is "seeing fantastic growth," especially in e-book sales to handheld devices.
