Still, nothing like a Kindle version for readability though.
The problem with a Kindle, though, is in being able to work with the text as you use it. Can you annotate? can you copy and paste it and email portions of it? Can you pull it into a document for editing? Can you share it, then collaboratively edit it with others with a similar device. That's the advantages that this has over an e-reader, imo.

Ideally, this gives you the functionality and comfort of an e-reader, but the robust power of an actual computer. We'll see, though.
