E-readers in India

Business Standard has an interesting article in yesterday’s edition titled ‘ Turning a digital page’:

Bookworms warm up to the e-reader, but the device will take a few years to catch on in India.

Interesting references to a recent survey about e-readers & their acceptability factor in India:

  • 93 per cent of e-reader owners are “somewhat” or “very” satisfied with the device.
  • 60 per cent users said they liked the wireless feature in e-readers, while 23 per cent liked the touchscreen feature.
