Apple Computer wants to take advantage of print media by building an eBook-capable iPod, according to a recent report from Variety.
While the big publishers are still waiting for the appearance of a new-fangled eBook reader from Sony that could boost sales, they’re not denying the possibility of a partnership with Apple; nor would they likely mind the potential success citing the success similar agreements brought to the music industry.
I’d certainly consider buying an audiobook to play on my iPod, although I prefer being able to listen to books in the car. But the thought of trying to read a book on an iPod, (unless it was a lot larger than any of the models currently available) is not all that appealing.
How about you? Would you want an iPod that would accommodate eBooks?
