Reading into the lack of a new Kindle announcement

This article discussed the surprising (or maybe not so much) lack of a new kindle announcement at a recent event. Ebook reader sales peaked in 2014, and since then have been steadily declining, making room for tablet and other smart device sales. The technology associated with e-readers has plateaued as well; there isn’t much more that can be done to improve the display, battery life, etc.. As tablet sales rise and more people turn to audio books, it’s clear that the need for ebook readers is not nearly as great as it was 5 years ago.
