As far as DRMed books, I've only bought those from Amazon.com for the Kindle, and that's primarily because it's just so darned convenient to do so. And, at this time, I'm not worried about being able to read these books on a future non-Kindle device. And right now, while I'm not terribly concerned about having the same books on both devices, the only books I've bought in Sony format have been from Baen or Fictionwise -- both vendors offering "multi-format" licenses that allow me to download the same book in both file formats.
