A better price estimate would be the price for Windows CE which ran from $11-30.

The price range I gave was for the retail price of the e-reader as a whole, not the OS! Although I'm sure Ballmer would like to be able to charge as much for the OS as the device is otherwise worth.
I think a great e-reader (non-PDF) could be made using Mozilla's BtG.
