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?
