Which e-readers will the iPad crush?

Padang Ekspres.net-Ever since we had an inkling that Apple would come out with a slate-style device that resembled a giant iPod Touch, we knew that it would have a profound impact on the e-book reader world. We always figured there would be a before and after shot of the market--and it wouldn't be pretty for certain companies that had been working long and hard to deliver what they hoped would be innovative and appealing devices.

Of course, some of those devices will remain innovative and appealing, but when you're going up against a slick device like the iPad that has Apple's tremendous marketing muscle behind it, you're probably in for a rough ride if your product doesn't have a true competitive advantage and isn't priced properly.

While we expect the iPad to cause many casualties in the e-book world (only a select few will survive), we've come up with a list of several e-reader hopefuls that will be most profoundly impacted by the arrival of the iPad.
