Popular eBook Beliefs Questioned in Consumer Survey; Consumer eBook Adoption Measured
The Open eBook Forum today announced the findings of the Consumer Survey on Electronic Books. Conducted at New York is Book Country in October 2002, the survey examines consumer preferences towards electronic and paper books. Unique to this study is an attempt to measure attitudes towards eBooks by people who read "paper" books.
Contrary to a commonly held industry belief, results indicate no correlation between computer skills or daily Internet use and downloading an eBook. General readers are as likely to adopt eBook technology as people who have expert computer skills and people who visit the Internet daily.
Factors in consumer willingness to read eBooks in the future were also measured:
67% of respondents agreed that they would like to read an eBook in the future;
62% said they would read an eBook from their library;
61% said eBooks should be priced the same as paperbooks and
70% said that they would buy an eBook if it could be read on any computer.
