This sounds pretty awesome... But I do see a couple things that would prevent this from taking off.
A lot of students buy used books, and then resell them when the class is over so they can recover some of the costs. I'd imagine this would be a much cheaper solution than the e-book version.
Also, you can flip through pages of a text book quick than an e-book and this can be useful in finding the information you need.
However, good usage of bookmarks and a search function could help this. Also the ability to type in a page number.
The biggest advantage is not having to lug around multiple text books. No risk in bringing the wrong books. But then there is a downfall with that... battery life.
Obviously, there are many pros and cons. I would like to get some hands on with this to see how well it actually works.

Also... I was just thinking how awesome it would be to have a tablet with great battery life and multi touch hand gestures to quickly flip through pages or highlight things etc...
Make it happen B&N!
