I completely disagree with you. There certainly is a market for a larger-format device (A4 screen would be logical), but it's a different
market to the one the Sony Reader and friends are intended for. I think myself that the market for fiction reading is enormously
larger than the academic market. Compare the number of fiction books sold to the number of textbooks!
