"readability" is feature book-readers care about, unfortunately most "consumers" aren't "book consumers" therefore if the iPad is designed for the average "magazine (ultra-light) reader" than it will be a "kindle-killer". If the iPad is good for the "reading on the toilet" it WILL kill kindle's chance of "tablet dominance", BUT kindle will still have a sizable market if it remains merely the choice "e-book". As long as Amazon manages to convert a large portion of book-readers to kindle-readers than Bezos could care less (and should be thrilled).
