doubt that Amazon has secured e-rights for those 9.9 million titles. I'm certain
that MobiPocket hasn't, otherwise you would have seen them available already. I know for a fact that the publishers of a number of those paper titles haven't secured e-rights, either. Several houses and imprints are still in e-rights scramble mode. Once someone who does own the e-rights, whether it's the author or a publisher, decides to license them, they will still have to decide on whether to go through Sony, MobiPocket, whatever Amazon is going to do, some other route, or some combination of the above.
Whatever Amazon does, I wouldn't expect the number of available titles to be in the millions right away. I'd be surprised if it even got close to six figures.
