I thought the same thing about the Kindle. What is going to make it  
something are going to be the apps written for it specifically and the  
iBook store. It's at the same price point as the Kindle DX and will  
give a much richer experience to anything the Kindle will ever have.

I don't see myself buying one, but I can see the appeal.
