In this edition of the Good e-Reader Radio Show we give you the quintessential week in review! If you had a busy week due to Easter Weekend family meetings or if you went on vacation you might have missed a ton of news! We sum up the most essential stories of the week so you can stay on top of the world of e-Readers, eBooks, Digital Publishing and Tablet PC’s.
In e-reader news this week we talk about the new Amazon Store in Germany and how local German authors can make money online selling their works to their fellow countryman. We also get into the new iRiver Story HD that arrived at the FCC and what you can expect out of the device. The Barnes and Noble Nook Color, which proved to be one of the most exciting devices last year is in store for a firmware update, hopefully today. This will give you a chance to access a custom built App Market! When you tap into this new store you can get free and paid applications and greatly enhance your e-reader. Want to knock over some pigs with some very Angry Birds? Want to have Adobe Flash? You will get this an more with the update coming soon!
In Tablet news we talk about how Best Buy is supposed to get an increased allotment of iPad 2’s to meet ravenous demand. We also go into detail about the HTC Flyer, the AT&T version of the Motorola Xoom and the Blackberry Playbook.
Finally we wrap the show up with a preview of next months eBooks coming out and give you some details on our next upcoming show! This will be a very special edition of the Good e-Reader Radio show, where we give independent authors advice on how to promote your digital eBooks.
