One of the hottest areas in R&D today is the development of personal reading devices that serve an increasingly mobile population. This highly competitive arena is driving innovation in both the format and delivery of information resources, offering publishers an opportunity to be creative and breathe new life into even the most traditional information tools for a new generation of users.
NFAIS will hold a 90-minute informational Webinar, Portable Devices and Mobile Users. Maureen Kelly, Principal, Content Kinetics, will open the meeting with a brief history of book technology. Jill O' Neill, NFAIS Director of Communication and Planning, will then discuss the reading experience, including an overview of today's established user interfaces and navigational approaches and how users are encouraged to customize their own experience.
The meeting will then take a look at the development of e-reader technology, from first to third generation and beyond, current content delivery channels, and the markets for e-readers and e-publications. And in closing, the meeting will focus on why all information providers need to pay attention to the development of portable reading devices so that they can re-shape their content to offer an enjoyable and satisfying user experience - on any platform, anywhere!
