Amazon has revealed little data about Kindle sales, but now, according to TechCrunch, Citigroup Analyst Mark Mahaney has issued a report predicting that Amazon will generate up $750 million in Kindle revenues by 2010, with half of that coming from device sales and the other half book sales.
Based on my look at the Kindle, I think it's going to be a huge hit and will expose hundreds of thousands of readers to the joy of digital books. Sure, the device isn't perfect, but with few more simple tweaks and a price reduction Amazon has a killer device on its hands.
Smashwords books are easily readable on the Kindle.

With regard to the Kindle, it, like all e-readers currently available, has a number of fundamental design flaws: it does not look, feel, or work like a book.
Forcing the user to get to grips with a new format to replace well designed old technology has never worked well.
Basically, I don’t want someone to redesign the book or change my reading experience, I just want an electronic book. If someone comes up with one of those, at a reasonable cost, I’ll have it, and so will millions of others.
What changes would you make to the Kindle, or other eBook readers, to make it suit your requirements?
