Will people begin to like e-books?

That is going to happen in the forecast of Amazon who is expected to launch the new Kindle 2.0 reader.
Analysts think it will be a $1 billion dollar business for the online retailer by next year.

It will generate revenues (4%) to Amazon by 2010, assuming its adoption will follow in the footsteps of the Apple iPod, doing for e-books what the iPod did for digital music.
The new Kindle will be longer and thinner than Kindle 1.0, with a more user-friendly keypad and device side-buttons that are less prone to accidental hits/accidental page turns.
The new device won´t have touch-screen capability, nor a color screen, but faster page-turning functionality.
Unofficial sources also talked about an educational model for students as textbook.(not in the current year)
