Amazon's Kindle and PDFPlates.com

Just read about the use of Amazon's Kindle reader and website http://www.pdfplates.com/ in AOPA Magazine as a possible solution to printed approach plates. 

Nothing new about downloadable approach plates, but PDFPlates.com groups the downloads by region (identical to the approach plate books), making bulk downloads a lot easier.

PDFPlates also builds a PDF Index of the plates.

A Kindle is $500, but PDFs can be viewed on any computer (Kindle seems a lot easier in the cockpit than a laptop -- unless the laptop is a tablet PC).

Anyone using this system?
