Digitimes Research says that 740,000 ereaders were sold in April to May worldwide and the Nook sold 270,000 as opposed to the Kindle’s 118,000. Global ereader shipments, they say, totaled 1.43 million units in the first quarter.
Further, they are saying that Amazon is reducing Kindle inventory preparatory to a new product launch in July-August and that Sony is also expected to release a new unit in July.
Thanks to E-Reader-info for the heads up.
