A few years ago there were a lot of competitors in the eReader marketplace. Companies were vying for supremacy in both the hardware and software market. As time went on, the winners ended up being one hardware manufacturer and several software manufacturers.
The hardware manufacturer, Amazon, ended up creating customized eReaders that are able to surf the internet and do all sorts of other tasks. At the same time, the software makers that created applications managed to put eReader software on every type of operating system and device, making it easier for people download and try several brands to find out which one works best for them.
Here are some good reasons that an eReader is worth your business investment:
Standardization Is Here
You may think that with several types of eReader available, it would be hard to ensure that there would be enough books that would match the proprietary file type that each company had created. Fortunately, this time when companies created eReaders, they worked with the publishing companies and software companies in order to create eReaders that can read the most standardized file types. In addition, rendering pictures that are contained in files is now something that all eReaders can do.
The Price Is Right
Since the 1980’s many software project books have used an eReader as an example of the type of product that you could build. eReaders have therefore captured the imagination of programmers for a few decades. When they first started out, it was a little costly to use them because they were running on proprietary software on top of proprietary hardware. Today, it has become much better for consumers because the cost of the top packages that are downloaded is free. The market has shifted from requiring payment for applications to requiring input or feedback from the customer base.
Of course the cost of books hasn’t really changed. It may be a little cheaper to download a book on a digital license, but you will want a good book store that retains your license with your order history, or you will end up having a system like your mp4 collection. With ebooks or mp4 collections- when you lose your tablet because it is broken or stolen, it can take weeks to replace your collection because you don’t have a list of all the titles that were yours that were digital.
Purchase Anywhere, Download Now
Although you might find that the bookstore that you use online is a little annoying when it comes to purchasing a book and allowing you to download it right away, you can certainly be anywhere in the world and have an Internet connection and download a book that you have borrowed or bought.
Your business can then keep a library so that your titles are available to new employees that haven’t read the same titles that experienced workers have read. If you end up getting needing “Their Eyes Were Watching God Quotes”, you can run a filter and ensure that your library contains the materials that your buyers intended.
eReaders started out being software and hardware that cost a few hundred dollars per person. Today, you can download the cheapest software for free, making it easy and inexpensive to organize your business library. The primary cost, therefore, is for the books that you add as you go along. If you are a larger company, you can often arrange to pay a lower rate by joining a club or syndicate that allows you to try books out for as long as you would like them.
