They may have a point though, I can definitely see the market becoming saturated eventually. There is certainly more demand for cell phones, TVs, and MP3 players than there is for eReaders. What some of these companies are going to try to a hook into are the impulse buys who think they must all be the same.
I see a whole slew of inexpensive and poorly made readers showing up in the coming months just so that they can jump on the bandwagon. You'll start seeing $20 readers in the check out line at Walmart. In the short term this will be bad for readers overall, people that get stung by a cheap on will assume that they are all poorly made. Eventually though the quality ones should emerge stronger.
