If statistics brought forth by Photonics Industry and Technology Development Association (or just PIDA) are to be believed, e-books sales are on the rise. This is perhaps the clearest signal so far of e-books gaining on consumer preference. In numeric terms, this transforms to NT$13.2 billion (US$444.67 million) in first half, earning of Taiwan’s e-paper industry in 2011. This marks an increase of 6 percent in comparison to the second half of 2010, while rise of e-paper sales has shown an impressive growth of 70 percent compared to the same period a year ago.
This means e-readers may be back to haunt tablet PCs, which many had thought were the future of portable computing devices.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
