    Quote from the article:

    "So, if you can say to them, 'Gee you can spend $350 on a dedicated book reader, or you’re going to get this amazing Apple device at twice the price, but with the ability to do much more than read books,' " then Apple's tablet has a good chance of success, he said.
    THE THING HAS NO EINK DON'T PEOPLE GET IT???? I CAN READ ON MY COMPUTER IF I WANT BACKLIT .....

    Okay rant over ... LOL It just really annoys me that they compare all these backlit devices to the eReader. That is what sets the eReader apart that it mimics the book and has no strain on the eyes under extended use. I don’t want to look at a computer every second of the day!!

    Default Apple's big news = Good news for nook

    looks like Apple's new iPad (an even worse name than nook, btw) will be using ePub in their bookstore. Will it work on nook? This can only mean better access to ebooks, so here's to hoping they are compatible.

    I suppose they might be, though why anyone would want to read books on an iPad I do not understand.

    What a name! Someone touches my iPad and they're going to get slapped!

    And waht's going to happen to Apple's stock when all those people start sueing because they went blind reading e-books on a dedicated backlit screen?

    Oh, I wouldn't want to read on the thing. My eyes hurt enough reading at work all day. I was just thinking in terms of epub becoming the industry standard for ebooks (with Amazon as the only holdout now).

    Looks like they just posted prices in the article:

    The iPad will cost $499 for a 16-gigabyte model, $599 for a 32 GB version and $699 for a 64-gigabyte model with Wi-Fi only, and will be available in 60 days. It will cost an additional $130 for units that also can use 3G, which should be out in 90 days, making the most expensive model $829. Jobs said AT&T will charge $29.99 a month for "unlimited use" and $14.99 a month for up to 250 megabytes. There will be no contract with AT&T required for the plans, he said.
    Hefty price tag with the 3G. Now I’m not saying I wouldn’t own one, cause it’s neat looking, but it would never replace my eReader for reading. I have no problem with this thing, I just wish they’d stop comparing it to eReaders.

    It is pretty big though, that’s why I never went with the DX, I prefer my smaller, but still big enough to read on, unassuming eReader. I’m not sure I would pull that thing out when I’m standing in line at the post office, everyone around me would be able to clearly see (and read) what I was doing!!

    Cheers!

    I'm a huge Apple fan, but no way this replaces my nook.
