Will The Kindle Be For Amazon What The iPod Is For Apple?

Rather than try to "outbook" the bound book, Bezos said, Amazon designed Kindle with the e-book's strengths in mind.
It is thinner than most paperbacks and weighs 10.3 ounces. Yet it can hold some 200 books, along with newspapers, magazines and an entire dictionary.
Readers can buy and download books directly to the Kindle — without a PC — through Sprint Nextel Corp.'s high-speed EV-DO cellular network without fees or contract commitments. They also can take notes on what they read and store them on Amazon's servers.

Some questions:
-Do you think this will be on your shelf anytime soon?
-Is $9.99 a fair price for downloadable books?
-If you plan on buying one, what would be your reasoning for your purchase?
