2010 sounds about right.
At times I think of ebooks being similar to audiobooks as far as availability history.
With audiobooks for a long time you had sporadic releases of new stuff while backcatalog releases were rare. Now there are tons of audiobooks coming out of older titles and where series were only getting current releases companies are now going back and filling in the earlier titles.
Now with ebooks we seem to be hitting a point where a majority of new releases are getting ebooks and publishers, in the past year or so, seem to be making a better effort to start putting out their backcatalog.
There's a long way to go and some publishers "get it" better than others (some :cough: Macmillan) seem to barely "get it" at all. Hopefully that'll change, but the market truly does seem to finally be getting real traction.

This includes the highest profile reference yet to the upcoming Android port of eReader, and also confirmation of eReader for Plastic Logic (which was previously assumed to be in the works, based on the partnership between the two companies).

Hmmm ... given that possibility (and I believe it, since I only became "converted" to ebooks a few years ago and have already spent oodles of $$ on them!), what would be some good stocks to invest in related to the ebook industry?
Sony and Amazon, givens ... but what other businesses might profit from this?

I would think EInk and PVI, who make most of the screens. I don't know if either is a public company though.
