I could have written that :-) I guess we're in the same market. I played with a Kindle and it's very nice, it even renders web sites that are text and pictures and you can check your gmail for example (plus there's the G3 version). I checked out the iPad2 and it's just too big and heavy for eReader in my opinion, plus I don't see my need for a laptop without keyboard / oversized iTouch.
