On The Menu: The E-Reader Rundown

mmm_2-3.gifFrom the Alex to the Skiff, today’s mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast was all about e-readers. Hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven had a run down of all the e-readers that are coming to the market soon, including a bunch that have been announced this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Jason and Matt were also joined by Time magazine’s Techland blogger Peter Ha, who had a dispatch from CES. After talking about what he’s seen at the trade show, Peter gave his thoughts on the future of the e-reader market.

“The e-reader market is so small and all these folks are trying to jump into it,” he said. “Realistically, how many can survive? Maybe one or two.”

Also discussed: some tips for aspiring technology writers.
