I recently bought a Kindle 2 and I love it. It's easy on the eyes, books are cheap, and the battery last foreverish. I like the iPad and its a great "toy" but I can't see my self reading a book on it. I hate reading on my computer because of the strain it causes. I understand the iPad's main function is not a ebook reader, so what I have gathered from reading is the iPad is used for entertainment purposes... Whats the point, everything I can do on the iPad I can do on my iPhone or Macbook Pro, so whats the point of buying a device that would just act like a middleman.. Whats your opinion.
