We can definitely expect to see the ebook reader technology become more advanced and affordable, thus increasing the supply to consumers and allowing for more publishers to enter the market. I wouldn't say it would make printed books obsolete, decline probably, but more so create a shift in the book industry towards more electronic publishing that overall will increase the revenue of the industry making all parties better off, for the most part. And as to the comment by 'N.E.H.' concerning throwing away your old library and having to start anew, the Whispernet used by Amazon for Kindle prevents this since it stores all of your data through Whispernet. For example, my wife has a Kindle and I have a Blackberry with Kindle application and the Whispernet stores my library allowing me transfer devices at ease.
