Sharp to enter crowded e-reader market Sharp has announced today that they plan to enter the crowded e-reader/e-book market, hoping to take a piece while the market is still in its toddler years.
The company will offer an e-book distribution service by the end of the year, and a reader that will allow users to playback audio and video content.

Sharp has confirmed publisher backing in Japan "and overseas."

The market has grown crowded over the past 24 months, with the launch of the iPad, Nook and updated Sony and Amazon devices.

Just in the last month, Barnes & Noble and Amazon slashed the prices on their popular devices to under $200.

Earlier in the month, search giant Google announced it was planning on launching an e-book service in Japan, as well.
