Seriously–When do the ebooks come out? 30 June, 2007

You’ll recall that there has been a little bit of talk regarding the possibility of the iPhone as an ebook reading device.  

Not having had the chance to mess around with the iPhone myself, I’m taking it from Mike Cane that the device might be more than up to the task. Mike got to play with the iPhone and has this to say:

“That screen is to die for! It is so bright, it’s practically religious! No, really!”

and

“That soft keyboard — hey, it worked pretty much all right. I was very surprised at how responsive it was.”

So far the iPhone boasts a good screen and the ability to take notes. Not to mention the potential ease of acquiring information directly from the interweb. Sounds like a really great platform for ebook reading to me.
