But even better than that: Competition is GOOD.akjak said:Somehow I'm not afraid at all of the Blackberry/B&N partnership. Both losing players desperately trying to stay afloat.
Blackberry is so far inferior to iPhone it's not even funny. Ditto B&N to Amazon.
No threat here.
I'm glad there are other ways to do things, it makes Amazon work HARDER to make better products, and to provide them less expensively. As consumers, we benefit.
I have an iPhone, and the kindle app. The kindle app would not have prevented me from buying the kindle, but I am glad I have choices. I found myself waiting for some friends, and I had my phone but not my kindle. So I took it out and read a little. (It's PERFECT for the poker book I'm reading which is 2-3 pages to describe a hand, and then another 2-3 pages for another hand.)
