We've already had a psot by someone who did purchase some eBooks in eReaderformat by mistake because of the use of the term eReader being used incorrectly. I'm just trying to help avoid any further problems by the confusion this can cause. For example, BookonBoard has the Gen3 for sale. They also sell eReader format eBooks.

... it is possible that someone might say that since no Mobipocket eBook is in the format list, I'll purchase eReader since it is the same thing. And it really is not. The Gen3 won't handle it at all. It's just too easy for someone new to eBooks to get confused by all of the different terms and if we allow eReader to be used to mean eink based eBook reader then we are doing everyone a disservice in allowing the confusion to continue.
