Apple "Apple is further tightening its control of the App Store. Some application developers, including Sony, say Apple has told them they can no longer sell e-books within their apps unless the transactions go through Appleā€™s system. Apple rejected Sony's iPhone application, which would have let people buy and read e-books from the Sony Reader Store."

What's the attraction of reading ebooks on an iDevice until they do one with an E-Ink or Pixel Qi screen?

I have a Kobo ebook reader (e-ink screen), and I find I really use my iPad for it more, mostly because I happen to have it with me. The only thing I dislike is I can't read in portrait mode with my sunglasses on, thanks to the nature of LCD screens and polarised glasses ;)

You read with sunglasses on? Doesn't that result in lower contrast?
