How Amazon Underground will affect content pricing and business models

How Amazon Underground will affect content pricing and business models | Words and Chips | Noticias sobre edición digital | Scoop.it

Is Reading eBooks on your Smartphone a Product of Availability Bias?

Is Reading eBooks on your Smartphone a Product of Availability Bias? | Words and Chips | Noticias sobre edición digital | Scoop.it

There is no denying that there are more smartphones in the world than tablets and dedicated e-readers such as the Kindle. It is also important to note that the overall reading population in the US is massive. The books market, in terms of total books sold worldwide, is bigger than both movies and music. In a recent interview with Willem Van Lancker, the creative co-founder of eBook subscription service Oyster he said that future of books is not your tablet or e-reader, but your smartphone. This is quite the bombshell, but is it due to availability bias?
