I'm amazed you can say that with a straight face. The iphone OS SDK has a huge feature set and is in continuous development adding even more to it.

The lack of a dream ebook reader is partly due to lack of interest and now even with the big players making apps, first version on a new platform jitters. Also, there's a sort of lack of competition to innovate - You need their app to read their books (excluding people circumventing drm). If you could buy an ereader app to buy and read books from B&N, Amazon, Apple, etc, software writers could step in compete by making the best ebook reader.
