Apple had little choice really.
DRM free - Publishers say no
use Adept - Adobe charge us (in apples opinion I guess) too much money.
I don't think opening up the reading device to non DRM EPub is that unique since I believe most readers that support Epubs do it as well.
Just out of curiosity, how much does Adobe charge to let others access adept? I think there are other readers beside Sony who uses it and some of them seem to be smaller companies than Sony or Apple. It's hard to imagine that other companies can afford it while a big company like Apple can't.
