Will Women Lead the eBook Revolution?

Last month, PCMag.com EIC Lance Ulanoff explained (at the 2:20 mark of this video) why he thought women would be the biggest readers on the iPad. Today, eBookNewser featured a Media Beat interview with Cosmopolitan editor Kate White–who also agreed that women will lead the eBook revolution.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with mediabistro.com senior editor Donya Blaze: “I think women may not always be on the vanguard, but boy, have we proven that we can embrace the digital world. What was interesting for me was to hear that my Kindle sales for [my novel] Hush were really exceptional. We don’t have the time in life to putter around and the Internet makes us so much more efficient, digital makes us more efficient–we are all going to embrace that.”

Tune in to Media Beat on April 5th to watch the complete interview with White.

Sony Reader Daily Edition Shipping Today

stevehaber23.jpgAt mediabistro.com’s eBook Summit last week, Sony digital reading business division president Steve Haber (pictured) said that the company’s new Sony Reader Daily Edition e-reader would ship by Christmas–and he was right.

Many in the audience were skeptical of his claim–including the moderator, PC Mag editor-in-chief Lance Ulanoff. Ulanoff tweeted: “Sony eBook prez told me the wireless Reader will ship in time for the holiday–in 2009! I’m taking a wait-and-see attitude.” Nevertheless, the company beat expectations and shipped the initial units today.

Here’s more from Engadget: “[Sony] managed to get the first ones out the door on the early end of its December 18th to January 8th estimate, with the initial batch of pre-orders shipping today. Unfortunately, anyone that didn’t pre-order the e-reader is out of luck for the time being, as it’s now back-ordered with a new estimated ship date of January 15th.”
