    ePub is a standard format so it might mean we can use ebooks we already have. Sort of like the iPod came with MP3 support, now that I come to think of it.

    What about PDFs? Think you'll be able to import your own into it?

    Reading PDF's is quite easy on the iPod Touch (email,Safari, Air Sharing type apps, etc.) so it should be the same (but better) on the iPad!

    Same, if there is some sort of photoshop port (not like PS Mobile for iPhone), I will get it!

    In the demo, he was opening PDFs from Mail, and I'm sure there will be other ways to get them onto the device. The rendering was pretty quick for the Paris metro map (although that may have been an image rather than a vector-based PDF).

    I really wish there were a USB port. It'd be nice to transfer books, songs, videos, files, etc. It looks like a great eBook reader from the demonstration video. I really wish it had multitasking and more functionality and the iPod touch.

    Yeah I'm really hoping for PDF capabilities in the iBooks app.

    School textbooks would be awesome. I've "obtained" some eBooks from school on .pdf, and would be really cool to have them on there.
