Remember I wrote that "I won't even consider buying a Kindle until they display in color, include easy e-mail access and phone capabilities and, essentially, replace my phone."
Well, look what Apple and Amazon dreamed up!
A Kindle app on the iPhone. Geez louise, I thought it would take 'em 5 years to figure this out. Looks like I'm gonna have to put my money where my mouth is . . .
I wonder how the Kindle app works with the other iPhone features. Can you copy/import text? Can you cite sources in other apps?
Its funny, I was just talking to my cousin--who, ironically, works for Microsoft as an engineer--and he was showing off his friend's iPhone and explaining all the apps to me.
In the course of our conversation, I was oohing and aahing, but, in the end, I told him, "this really doesn't work for me. I don't like the keyboard."
He said, "yeah, you are a writer. Most people are just readers. But you develop content so this doesn't really meet your needs."
So my next caveat would be an iPhone with a Kindle app and a better, more tactile keyboard for us writers.
This time, I will give Apple less lead time. How about a year, guys?
