Kindle & iPad Still Kings of the E-Book Readers

I expect these to continue dominating for a while. But as non-DRM books become more dominant, it won't make a big difference whether the reader we like is of a particular brand. Some people already use their iPhones to read (I can't).

I love dead-tree books, but I'm at retirement age, and won't have room for my library. If I downsize my house now, I expect I would have both a Kindle & an iPad for my reading.

The Kindle has a more convenient size - especially for people with purses. Both can be read within a plastic bag (better for weather & tubs than dead-tree books). The Kindle is easier to read in the sun. The iPad is better at replacing a bigger variety of print media.
