The eBook Universe: 2010

Last year, TechFlash published this chart:


Click = big

How have things changed since?

Here’s the chart with red striketouts:


Click = big

The one edit I did there was changing Shortcovers to Kobo and finally connecting it to Palm (that non-connection was an error in the original).

I’ve Xed out Asus because it’s just no longer a player. No one is going to buy that stupid monochrome LCD slab.

What’s missing:

Smashwords, which distributes to iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Amazon Kindle, and Kobo (among others!); Amazon Kindle 3; iPod Touch; Barnes & Noble Nook; Kobo Reader (and Borders); iBookstore; Vook; Enhanced Editions; Augen’s The Book; Pandigital Novel; ECTACO jetBook; Aluratek Libre; Cruz Reader; PC software for Barnes & Noble (which has hooked up with HP), Kindle, Kobo, and Sony Reader; iOS software for Nook, Kindle, and Kobo. And Aldiko must go in there too, which is important for Android devices. That’s off the top of my head. Probably other things not surfacing this early in the morning.

This chart will look different by the end of this year. MobiPocket, for example, is expected to be gone.

Thanks to Kat Meyer for helping me find this chart!
