Seriously, I don't think that the Kindle(s) are going to become roadkill instantly, but it's hard to fathom why somebody would choose a Kindle over the iPad, a one-trick-pony over a multi-talent?
The big difference is e-paper versus LCD. I haven't seen e-paper up close yet, but conceptually there's a big benefit to a device which can be read easily in bright sunlight and which has battery life measured in weeks rather than hours.

The lack of color is a problem, though.
