If an e-reader requires syncing with a PC, it will be a mark against it in the Japanese market. Moreover, if an individual wants an all-in-one device, a limited-use e-reader will be for gadget-lovers alone.
Nonetheless, the appetite for text in Japan seems to be huge. There’s certainly an opportunity to replace newspapers and books. It’s already happening anyway.

I know Japanese people have a good eye for design so the iPad might prove popular, it looks the part while the kindle doesn’t look like anything special.
