View of CES from NYT

The New York Times had a great story on e-readers at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES)last week. The piece focuses on some of the next generation readers, many of which will be tablet-like devices from companies like Apple and HP. While many think the mythical Apple tablet will dominate or at least radically alter the e-reader device market, Apple could have some competition this time. The future devices make the current Kindles look like the old model-T.

In addition to the news story, The NYT also has a video on the e-readers at CES. It is 3.5 minutes long and worth watching.
