The forecast for a death spiral in sales of e-readers doesn't mean the devices will become obsolete, according to paidContent's Laura Hazard Owen. While many uni-tasking devices face a grim future, e-readers still have benefits that could help support the segment somewhere in the 5M-10M shipment. With Amazon (AMZN +0.2%) and Barnes & Noble (BKS -0.1%) looking at digital content sales as a source for profits, expect a fresh product cycle to continue.
