Pew Reports E-Reader Ownership Growth Stronger Than Tablets

Pew Reports E-Reader Ownership Growth Stronger Than Tablets

Ever since the iPad debuted, e-readers were thought to be a dying breed with Amazon's Kindle on the preemptive attack with commercials touting its glare-free e-ink display as opposed to the iPad's glossy screen. However, a new report from Pew shows that so far e-readers are still going strong. In fact, their survey shows that e-readers not only have a greater ownership percentage but also a stronger growth rate when compared to tablets.

France wants tablet-tax for iPad and Android slates while Windows exempt

France wants tablet-tax for iPad and Android slates while Windows exempt

French legislators are considering imposing a tablet-tax that would affect all models with at least 40GB of internal storage, though Windows-based slates would be exempt. The proposal, reported by Numerama, is part of French "private copy" taxation which imposes extra fees on digital media like blank CDs, DVDs and thumb-drives; it's estimated it would add up to €12 ($16) to the cost of Apple's top-spec iPad or Android tablets. However, because Windows is classed as a "full" OS rather than a mobile one like iOS or Android, it escapes the taxation.

Archos 70 and Archos 101 hands-on [Video]

Archos weren't short of new internet tablets for IFA 2010, though it's their Archos 70 and Archos 101 which stood out when we stopped by their booth earlier today.  Measuring in at 7- and 10-inches respectively, the two Android slates (running 2.1 right now, but set to launch with 2.2 Froyo) are certainly thin and reasonable feature-packed, each toting a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics accelerator and WiFi b/g/n.

Archos 28, 32, 43, 70 & 101 Tablets Announced, Feature Android in Range of Sizes

We can probably safely assume at this point that tablets are here to stay. At least for awhile. And considering the effort that Archos has already put into the Android-based "tablet" market, there's no surprise here that they've just pulled the curtain off five (5!) brand new tablet devices, all featuring Google's mobile Operating System. Ranging in sizes and prices, as well as plenty of Archos-based "improvements" to the User Interface, meet the family of new Archos tablets.
