"The sharp rise in eBook activity on the iPhone indicates that Apple is positioned take market share from the Amazon Kindle as it did from the Nintendo DS. Despite the smaller form factor of the display, we predict that the iPhone will be a significant player in the book category of the Media & Entertainment space. Further, with Apple working on a larger tablet form factor, running on the iPhone OS, we believe Jeff Bezos and team will face significant competition."

Oh that's right, this is Apple land we are talking about.

I read, don't remember where, that all the console game devices dropped this quarter. PSP, NDS, XBox, PS2, even Wii.

But the iPhone already has the Kindle app. How is this taking market share from Amazon if Apple producet run Amazon Kindle apps?

The iPhone isn't so good at gaming that it would be tearing away market share from true gaming platforms. Any serious gamer knows the DS is a far better dedicated system.

There is so much market share being gained in the ebook sector, I'm not sure Apple is taking Amazon market share, every device will see massive gains for a while yet. Many people read on multiple devices as well lets not forget. So they read on their iPhone in addition to laptop, Kindle, Sony and so on.

Note that this is 20% of applications listed in the App Store, not 20% of sales. So it is impossible to interpret what this means in terms of 'ebook sector' sales.
