Sony: ebooks to overtake print within five years

Telegraph – “Steve Haber, president of Sony’s digital reading business division, said: “Within five years there will be more digital content sold than physical content. Three years ago, I said within ten years but I realised that was wrong – it’s within five.” He said the same patterns that Sony had seen in the digitisation of music and photography were now being repeated in the books market. Sony announced today that it will sponsor a new category in this year’s Dylan Thomas Prize – the Sony Reader Award for Unpublished Writers. The prize, to be awarded in December, will go to the best book by an unpublished novelist under 30 years old.”
