So... printed books cause eyestrain?
Or are you arguing that eInk screens cause less eyestrain than printed books?
I disagree. I've owned a Sony Reader and an iPad. The iPad is, hands down, easier on the eyes.
The Kindle and other eInk displays have a contrast ratio of 6:1 to 7:1. The iPad backlit IPS display is 750:1 to 930:1.
Other than perhaps directly under the sun, the iPad display wins. In dim light, the iPad owns.

I realize there's always pain in being an early adopter, but Google and T-Mobile aren't being very kind to the owners of the original Android device. The phone is 17 months old and was last updated 8 months ago. That's even more distressing given that it (originally) could only be purchased within a 24-month contract.
