Sony tried this with Librie, failed miserably, learned the lesson. Gemstar tried this with the original Ebk1150, went out of business (at least the e-book one).

Locking the reader is not going to work, because either (most probably) it will fail or if it's cool like the iPhone it will get cracked soon.

I am really eager for the details of the Kindle since right now we only know rumors...
