I suspect I am in the minority here, but for me if it works well as a magazine and newspaper reader I am in. Why would I carry an additional device to watch a movie, play music, etc? My laptop and iphone already handles these tasks just fine. I have owned both the Kindle 2 and Kindle DX, and as a newspaper and mag reader they are severely limited. However, the idea that I can have all my subscriptions delivered to a single device no matter where I am is hugely appealing. Saves paper, saves the hassle of recycling, can pull up old issues, easy searching, always with me, easy to carry, etc. Until it is easy to notate ebooks I won't be using any of these devices for reading books. But for media that is written quickly and meant to be consumed and disposed of quickly these devices have great potential. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make the iPad a great magazine and newspaper device! Oh, and NYT, WSJ, FT, Economist, etc, please price your content competitively(read: NOT the way you price it for the kindle)! If I can subscribe to the paper version for 1/4 the cost of the iPad version its going to be a tough sell.
