People have been talking about electronic replacements for books for quite some time. But Amazon may be the first company to offer a viable realization of the idea: Amazon Kindle.

Or you can get a 792x1024 screen of the same technology, plus wacom tablet, Xwindows, USB A and B connectors, CF and SD card support, ethernet and wifi. It is 600 euros, the iLiad.
And yes, it can read your PDFs, download your arxiv preprints, and pay gnuChess.
