Sale of eBooks Growth Declining on Amazon

ebook sales going down on amazonAs the e-book industry matures and users amass progressively larger content libraries, generating incremental e-book sales may become increasingly difficult. When the Amazon Kindle was introduced in 2007 and customers began building digital content libraries, the product had a relatively high attach rate, in our view. Now that the Kindle has been in the market for over 5 years, we believe the attach rate has declined. This is especially true as a larger proportion of Kindle sales are “upgrade-sales”, in which case, the customer already owns an existing content library.

What is the HDR Function ?
The HDR function shields out the background noise for example during recording of concerts. Currently, only iPhone 5 and HTC One have got this function. However, HTC has been recently caught in a sensitive supply issue of microphone for HTC One when a Dutch court, after an appeal from Nokia, ordered STMicro to stop supplying HDR MEMS for HTC One.

It is unlikely that HTC would require regulatory approval to change the microphone component, in our view. Some large operators will need to do acoustic testing and thus may take some lead time.
