Michael Pelikan has written an interesting article in Against the Grain about the Kindle Sony ebook reader showdown (Feb 2009 issue, article not available online.) Michael focuses this first article on the personal use market, but I’m (impatiently) awaiting the next installment when he will look at library support for reading devices. Michael is from Penn State where they’ve partnered with Sony to distribute Sony Readers through the library and within selected courses. The article includes interesting comments from faculty about the experience. He also gives a shout-out to calibre, open source ebook management software.
