To answer some of the questions about upcoming features, Steve P. posted this to the Fictionwise's Yahoo group yesterday. Specifically, someone had requested the option of turning off full justification.
I hope this is of some use to people here.

Hi everyone. I've not been ereading for quite a while now... that is until I've installed eReader for iPhone. I'm impressed not only because I can access both eReader.com and Fictionwise.com collections but also because I've always liked how the iPhone renders text.
I can't seem to download from eReader but had no problems at Fictionwise. (Incidentally, there are a lot of free multiformat classics at Fictionwise which I also got).
Oh, it takes a while to get used to "flicking" pages ... and my fingers kept on subconsciously looking for a scrollwheel (I didn't realize the Clie had such a lasting impression).
Anyway, I've got a couple of books downloaded and careful about downloading too much (this is after all, on an iPhone Classic (4GB), unlocked, pwnaged).
Lastly, I found a Kindle and iPhone comparison shot at Flickr, if you'd like to see.

not a good ereader
Apparently he contends that the iphone is not a good ereader because of too many other things that you can do on the phone? That seems silly to me.
I am planning on getting a iphone when my current cell phone dies, which probably won't be for another year.

One nice thing about the iPhone is that it renders italics and bold properly. I have come from Windows Mobile devices (and MS never really understood typography) where italics tended to be simulated (to save device memory) and generally looked awful. I was very pleased when some italics appeared in the book I was reading and it was "proper" italics.
It is great that eReader, BookShelf and Stanza are all being actively developed for the iPhone. As it stands eReader on the iPhone is already much better than it was on my Windows Mobile platform, it loads much faster, and doesn't crash if the device sleeps when eReader is running. I am very pleased so far...
