The trick there is that 'easier on the eye' isn't necessarily 'better on the eye'.
iPads are lovely to read on because they're lit from behind and have super high-resolution screens... but they're still screens, just like a computer, and half the problem with that is you're essentially staring at a light all day.
The Kindle isn't lit from behind (the new ones sort of are but not really) and so eye-strain wise it should be no worse than reading on paper. But stuff looks nicer all lit up on a iPad...
