Of course you can read eBooks on a tablet or even a smart phone by using an App, BUT long reading sessions (especially in difficult light conditions) can strain the eyes. eReaders are much nicer to use and better for your sight.
All inkBOOK devices support the Amazon Kindle App. You can read all your Amazon Kindle books on inkBOOK, but can also read books from other retailers too. inkBOOK is an android device that has all the benefits of an eReader. Have more choice with inkBOOK.
