My bet is that they will keep the Palm Doc wrapper.
This also interests me - the Amazon announcement specifically mentions "technical and engineering" books - which would allow increased conversion/adoption of textbooks - which dovetails nicely into their "rent a textbook" program - which might need new/different/increased DRM to limit/prevent the creation of "used ebook" textbook stores/exchanges, and get wary publishers on board. This format change certainly opens the way for Amazon to enter the digital textbook market - in all categories, if mathematical, engineering, computer symbols & calculations can be properly displayed.
