Read from Amazon with what hardware?

If I want to download books from Amazon, because of their low prices & large selection, do I have to have a Kindle? Or can one of the Sony readers get Amazon material? Or even the Nook, or something else? I'm mostly interested in mystery novels by popular authors. I know I can use a computer with the Kindle reader, but how about true ereader devices?

The only EInk devices that read Kindle ebooks are Kindles.
