Would be nice of Sony Reader LRM files are usable in some way...
I have a Nook and I'm looking forward to the iPad. E-ink is nice, but it's a pain not having backlighting. Barnes and Noble has also been slow getting publisher agreements signed, so the selection is rather limited. I'm thinking that Apple won't make that mistake!
Terrell, when you install the Kindle app, the sync function is found right on the home screen. Once you register your iPad with Amazon, again from the Kindle app, you can send Amazon titles to the device via Whispersync just as you would to a Kindle. It's all done automatically at your command from the Manage Your Kindle page.
Thank you very much for your help.
