iPad and eBooks, is it one sector?

I totally agree with Paul on this. iPad will kill Kindle and other eBooks for users (claiming to be readers) who are just trying to find a fully functional device that can be more fun than another fully functional device like their iPhones. However, this prompts the idea that Amazon, B&N and Sony should pitch their products this way. They should just drop it saying that they do actually compete in this sector. Just putting it clearly, Netbooks should fight back and eBook Readers should move on to another sector.

If you have to carry around one device – for your commute to work, for an hour in a coffee shop, or on a long-haul flight – then the iPad is the one to carry. Which is precisely why I’m so worried for the future of books, and for reading.
