I haven't used the eBook format specifically, but I know creating something electronically opens up a myriad of possibilities not available to you through paper mediums. In one of my old jobs, our company was looking at implementing multi-media eBooks. It's interesting to see all the different ways you can relay information when you add technology to the mix.

Also anecdotal only...it seems that more and more people are using at least one electronic device to consume information. If documentation for a company's product can be read and understood apart from the product, people may prefer to read it electronically.

Anecdotal evidence only... I published a guide (in both paperback & ebook format) for an open source project. To date, ebook sales have slightly outpaced paperback sales (~15%). But that may also be due to price -- ebook is priced 1/3 of the paperback and has no delivery charge.
