He says: “The Kindle fire is a good idea for Amazon, because they have the ability to sell that content. They have videos and music, so it makes sense for them to build out that ecosystem. Barnes & Noble and Kobo tablets make less sense to me, since neither one are focused on selling movies, videos or music …When Barnes & Noble came out with the Nook Tablet, the whole thing was tied to Netflix and Hulu.

However, the only caveat would be magazine content or children’s books; the new tablets do create a better reading experience for this kind of content.”
