Eventually it will but we still have a good 5 years until netbooks move to tablet form, get a Pixel Qi like screen in them with touch capabilities and are also light and thin enough to be carried and held easily to overtake the eReaders. I think tablet LCD screens will be the mainstream but you'll always be able to get a eReader device, its like Palm Pilots are now, you can find one if you wanted it but why would you want it when there are better things available. Right now eReaders are the best option for people that seriously read eBooks, a few years down the line I dont think that will be the case anymore seeing what stuff is coming out. Pixel Qi screens alone could knock out a huge need for and eInk reader but the netbook is still too big to be used in place of a book.
