Because I hate reading on a glowing screen, and I hate carrying around 10 books whenever I'm travelling. Only one compromise makes sense - e-ink.

Also, having been involved in digital forensics for most of the last 8 years, I know how horrible security is on the iPhone, and no way I'd trust it to do much more than very casual web browsing.

Eastern European hackers are praying the iPad becomes popular, because people WILL do their banking on them - it looks enough like a laptop, that people are going to forget it isn't...
