Unfortunately, I cannot see into the future. I would love to compare an iPad with the Kindle/Nook when the iPad finally becomes available next month. If I can get my hands on one, that is.
As a side note, we've tapered off the use of our Nook since January. My wife still likes reading books on it, but I've given up reading periodicals. The formatting and navigation is just that bad.
Maybe Mr. Malik will be right afterall. :-)
