ABSTRACT
The article discusses the features of electronic books (e-book) that are expected to launch over 2010. These devices are easier to read than a normal personal computer (PC) monitor and only use power when the page is turned. E-books will be able to use Wi-fi to enable Web browsing, diary and electronic functions. This technology enables individuals to make the leap away from paper to giving people highly portable electronic documents.
