I'm sure Steve may have thought it was true. The most common mistake I think anybody makes is assuming they are representative. Steve no longer reads books, therefore no one else (will, maybe a tiny minority, but certainly not enough to be worth Apple's while to cater to) does.

I still think the dedicated reader market isn't currently large enough to tempt Apple to make a device. They'd want iPod/iPhone numbers and I don't see that happening.

Who knows? They might actually mention reading ebooks as a use case for the rumored Apple tablet when it's released.
