I disagree. I have an ipad 2, and can read from it with the kindle app, but I can tell you, reading from any ipad,ipod, tablet is no where as nice as an ebook reader.
An ebook reader is just far better on the eye and looks almost as natural as reading from a book.
I never use my ipad for reading, I hate it for that purpose. A ebook reader does a far better job.
