The Kindle has many flaws, but it does allow you to read a few different non-DRM formats.
Amazon can do a lot of money only from selling kindle, like Apple does with the iPod.

The Kindle only allows the reading of Amazon DRM-protected content.
A revolutionary portable reader that wirelessly downloads books, newspapers, magazines and blogs to a crisp, high-resolution electronic paper display that looks and reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight.
