Two recent news stories suggest eBook Readers could be about so much more than books. If Reader makers want to capture a larger market, it makes sense that they have to move beyond simply replicating the paper book.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Are eBook Readers Moving Beyond Books?:
I am "waiting" for an ebook-reader that will be sturdy enough to use in an industrial environment.
I have, for many years, pushed for power plant construction companies to abandon the heavey binders normally used for the documentation delivered with the plant. I have suggested to replace the binders with a sturdy laptop that easily could contain all the information.
However, reading about these ebook readers I realise that such device would be cheaper than a laptop and also easier for the operators and maintenance personnel to carry around.
Besides, an ebook reader would make it easy for the company to update the plant documentation to ensure that the operating- and maintenance personnel had the very latest information...but so far I have met with a very negative response.
Best regards from a very frustrated technical writer
