Last week both Bokus in collaboration with Norstedts förlag and Adlibris in collaboration with Bonnierförlagen launched new e-readers. Adlibris their own "Letto" and Bokus two different e-readers Cybook och Iriver. Both are loaded with around 10 books when you buy them. And now both Bokus and Adlibris have a bigger selection of e-books.

Yesterday Bokus also released an Iphone app were you can scan the barcode on any book and then buy it directly from Bokus.

So I think that the saying that the book publishing business is so slow and will make the same mistakes as the music industry doesn't really make sense anymore. I think these are important steps on our way into the future.
