>> It also lets you read Kindle books on your iPad or iPod Touch, which is much better than on the Kindle itself, especially if there are illustrations.

That may change with the advent of the Fire. Full color, touch screen (and commensurately shorter battery life, o well).

For most reading, I wouldn't consider the iPod Touch better than the Kindle (but it's sure nice to have available, and if I had to lose one of the two overboard, I think I'd keep the iPod).

You can send PDFs to yourself on the Kindle. How they fare depends on the PDF and perhaps on the specific Kindle model. I've got a K2. Some PDFs are fine, some turn impossible ... text doesn't flow, breaks oddly and so on. The new Fire is supposed to be able to read PDF natively, which might improve things considerably.
