So… in addition to reading the NY Times on my iPhone, I recently downloaded the Amazon Kindle app for the iPhone, bought a book, and have begun reading on that.
Much to my surprise, it was quite enjoyable. It was like any other reading type experience that I had had. The book was good so I just flipped right through it.
It felt nice that I could have so many books in the palm of my hand. I didn’t have to worry about lugging them around with me in my bag.
After 20 minutes of reading, my eyes didn’t feel strained. They felt fine.
Battery consumption concerns me. It feels like because, when you’re reading, you always have the screen going that I’m going to kill the battery. I haven’t gotten a feeling for that yet so I’ll check back in.
Have you tried it out at all? What do you think?
