TeleRead: Bring the E-Books Home » IDPF survey of e-book buyers: PDA platform and eReader lead–and, yes, book prices matter

IDPF survey of e-book buyers: "Biggest complaints were about the costs of e-books, lack of enough titles, and, yes, DRM and format hassles."

Yet a little more commentary on the eBook front.

I suspect the winning reader format has more to do with the 'top-dawg' PDA than anything else. I prefer mine in LIT (MS Reader) format, but mainly because that is the native reader format (and supports the basic features). I certainly see NO advantage to PDF docs on ANY of the PDA platforms I have tried, they qualify as barely readable and generally non-functional for eBook purposes.
