It's about time, this may be the salvation of many physical only print media and a real boost to those companies who publish limited or hard to get e-media.
I'd certainly use it:
- IF it's cost effective
- IF it's really cross device capable. I've got a Kindle DX now but am open to switch to other devices if an impressive enough device comes to market.
- IF it's not crippled with excessive DRM, Amazon allows up to 6 devices to use one account, this is nice not to have to buy multiple copies of the same text.
- IF it supplies close to print output. Not hampered by dropping the pictures and a lot of articles to keep size and bandwidth down.
- IF it's timely, I'm not going to wait 2 weeks or more for an e version of a mag just so they can continue to push the physical version
