I would be apprehensive that they are losing money on the device and plan to make their money on the apps. But then I check out their appstore and there is next to nothing there. They have Plants v. zombies and angry birds then nothing else. wth are you supposed to do with it? I checked out the ebooks and they cost the same as the paper versions. I would much rather have a hard copy over an electronic version any day. I don't get the kindle.
I haven't really understand why there isn't a bigger price difference between hardcover and eBooks but my lifestyle would benefit from eBooks. I move every few years (continents) and I usually read when I travel. Being able to pack more than one book would be nice. But I rarely buy new books anyway. My favorite places for books are used bookstores and libraries but they don't exist in Taiwan. I have been able to buy a lot of books secondhand though.
I'll get an ipad/other at some point but I'm not traveling enough to justify the cost. And I have more camera stuff to buy.
