Amazon should simply provide an ebook DRM converter, so protected mobipocket or whatever other ebook DRM formats out there should be converted to Kindle DRM so those books can be read.

Or simply a software that checks the MD5 hash of the DRM protected ebooks, checks it with a database and that would unlock access to the Kindle format.

Also, providing rights with book providers are in order, Amazon should provide instant Kindle access to the Kindle version of all the books that an Amazon account has previously bought in paperback format, as long as that Amazon account is the same one tied to the Kindle.

Amazon should also explain to people that PDF and DOC is supported but simply have to be converted to .mobi using the Mobipocket software. Basically that is like having to use iTunes to synch ones library on the iPhone, basically people have to use the Mobipocket software to synch their existing library of unprotected PDF and DOC files.

And Amazon should say if they plan to or not to provide a Mobipocket DRM and PDF DRM converter solution. Or somehow allow access to competing online ebook stores over the EVDO, which could be for a charge to the competitor or a charge to the user since EVDO bandwidth has got to be paid for.
