I read a lot. I love reading on my phone. The convenience of noticing a new book by my favorite author just came out, slipping on-line for a few moments, buying it, downloading it, and starting to read it less than ten minutes later is a wonderful thing. I upgraded to the G1 when it first came out and was forced to read my online books in the least convenient format, the browser. This works. It also makes it difficult to return to your place in a story. In the ensuing eighteen months various readers came to the market. Of those my favorite is fbreader. These readers still had the disadvantage of requiring you to bring your own content to them. I've spent the last few months looking over Amazon's selection of books. It it far larger than what I could find at sites willing to sell me e-books without DRM. And using phonemypc to remote into my desktop from my phone to read from my kindle for PC was even less convenient that reading on a browser. It's just nice to have the fully functional app on my phone now.
