I'm getting that it's a novelty device.. what about kindle for reading?
Does anyone have the iPad yet (that can discuss it)? Doubt it. That said, I'm not sure how to answer your question until the iPad is released.
And what about Kindle for reading? Currently, you can read your Kindle books on a Kindle (obviously), on a PC, on a Mac (soon), on an iPhone/iPod Touch, and on a BlackBerry. I expect it will also be available on the iPad one day, as well as on Android devices.
