Publishers of digital content face uphill battle - The Globe and Mail

Publishers of digital content face uphill battle - The Globe and Mail:
"What about using Google, instead of Apple? Publishers I have talked to believe the tablet is likely to be the dominant device for reading digital content, and Apple has a very big early lead. That installed base of tablets, the iTunes store and the more than 100 million credit cards already signed in makes it a market that will be too big for many to ignore … even as they complain about the economics."
Just as we saw Android take the phone market by storm, we are likely to see a drastic change in the tablet market. Let Apple develop the market for the tablet. Chinese tablets will then come along and take over.
