Comparison against DynamoDB

Spent some time with the AWS folks the other day and was getting sold on 
using DynamoDB for some of our large Key Value store needs. However 
given the read/write economics of DynamoDB vs. Instance+Storage costs on 
Riak I was wondering if anybody has done a good thinking around where 
the cost inflections points are?

Also before I go and benchmark things how does Riak perform with 2B 
entries which are < 1K in size, when I last did the benchmarks - just 
before 1.0 - there were a few issues.
