Another group of naysayers claims that the Kindle has missed its window. E-book programs are thriving on the far more portable (and far more popular) iPhones and iPod Touches. Surely smartphones, which already serve as cameras, calculators and Web browsers, will become the dominant e-book readers as well.
I'll only say this: unless smartphones will get the same screen size as at least my PDA has, I will never use a smartphone to read books. And if a mobile phone gets so large as my PDA, I doubt people will want to buy it...

I'm looking forward to the round up.And was interesting to read the different costs for the varying subscriptions (I'm not sure I ever knew that before).I used to read on my Palm...I wouldn't do it now,not even sure I'd be able to do it actually without straining my vision. I'm hoping I get to see a Kindle 2 up close-I have actually seen alot more sony readers than kindles-and its not just gadget bias-I'm the kind of person who would walk up to someone and ask about their device (and have often been the person asked in the past)-in fact did that with the Kindle a few weeks ago,one morning at starbucks.
