IMO the only thing saving this is the screen. Talking to a buddy of mine, there is no native PDF reader, and you don't just "email word documents and pictures" to it - you have to send them through a converter run by Amazon. $400 so I can read a limited number of books is a rather frivolous luxury, I think.

Kindle: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device
I wonder if Amazon's Kindle technology will be adopted in the System i
space?
So that we will be able to purchase our IBM, Oracle, SAP,
iSeriesnetwork, mcpressonline books and subscriptions to read on
Amazon's Kindle?
