What's the Kindle got that the iPhone doesn't? For now it's got (or is) an e-reading application.
Who's to say that someone won't develop an e-reading application on the iPhone, thus making it a tough competitor for Kindle?
That's what's brought to light in a CNET article about the iPhone vs the Kindle.
The writer, Greg Sandoval, points out that some developer might create an e-reading app, or Steve Jobs may already have that up his sleeve and just hasn't let it out yet.
At any rate, the iPhone as it is carries more value for the money than Kindle does. It's cheaper for one.
But who can beat the experience of Kindle's easy-on-the-eyes E ink technology? The iPhone's close with a 3.5-inch high-resolution widescreen.
Another thing the author sneaks into his story...he's been reading books on his Palm Pilot TX.
Amazon, in the long run, won't make money from selling Kindle, but it's sure to by selling all the ebooks that will be read on other devices.
