    Two questions:
    (1) Will the ebook feature allow for changing (increasing) font size, like the Kindle does?
    (2) Will content already owned (from Amazon) in Kindle format be able to be transferred to the iPad?

    I believe my wife told me that you will be able to increase the font.
    Native, the Kindle books are not supported but some sleuthing around the net will yield results. Do you know how to hack a little? You have to break the security and then do a format conversion.

    Thanks.
    If you know how to do that, please let me know. Presume you have download content from Kindle to PC first?

    It would stink if I lost the use of the Kindle books I already own, I was so looking forward to reading on a bigger format.

    It is the Kindle app for iPhone/itouch, you can find it at the app store. Just type in "kindle" in the search bar or @ amazon's site
    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Kindle+app+for+iPhone&x=0&y=0]Amazon.com: Kindle app for iPhone[/ame]

    Hope that helps.

    Amazon has their own DRM (digital rights management) that prevents the books from being read on other devices. This is a requirement that most publishers demand to prevent their books from being illegally copied. Programs such as Calibre may be able to strip or alter the DRM. However, Apple also has their own DRM that will be applied to the ipad. Whether the non-stripped or altered e-book will display correctly is currently open to question. Once the Ipad is out, we will find out more.

    All the best!
