The Kindle model is OK from a user's point of view, but it's pretty bad from the publisher's end.

The retailer (Amazon) gets to keep 65% of the purchase price.

Imagine the uproar if Apple got to keep 65% of the price of things at the iTunes store - instead the music publisher gets 70% of the price.
