So it seems like everyone and their brother is talking about the Amazon Kindle E-Book reader. Well, I’m not a fan yet.
- It’s something else that I have to carry. Do I wanna carry one more device?
- It’s expensive. It’s $400 (well $399). Is carrying paper books with you that much of a problem? A big enough problem that it’d be worth $400.
- If I lose a hardback book, I’ve lost $25. If I lose the Kindle, I’ve lost $400. (This is speaking from someone who was mugged and got his iPhone stolen.)
I think the future of e-books is the Apple iPhone. It’s something more people already have. It’s the most popular device with the biggest screen. It has a good battery.
The Apple iPhone is also launching it’s SDK in February. Who’s going to write the e-book reader app come February?
