The article contradicts itself. It starts by saying (emphasis mine):
Quote:
Donít blame the tablet computer for the demise of the ebook reader.
But finishes with:
Quote:
Younger buyers in established ereader markets will eventually go grey, of course, but by the time they are of sufficiently mature years to find themselves in the demographic of consumer who might once have selected such a device, they will be so accustomed to using tablets not only for reading but also for a wide range of tasks and applications, it will never occur to them to use something else.
So it is not the fault of the tablets, but because the ones growing old with tablets will never consider anything else to read?
Sounds like a Catch-22.

It is quite possible that the dedicated ebook readers disappear instead as more and more people don't read paper books no more (or less and less so).
