My iPhone fits in my shirt pocket. My Kindle doesn't. That guarantees there will be times I will use it. Sometimes I don't want to have to hold the Kindle continuously to use it intermittently. This solution is ideal for that and I also don't risk dropping/theft etc..
It will be great for those who don't want to carry their Kindles everywhere.
Having said that, I'll probably never use it. I use my iphone for mail and to check the news or look something up when I'm on the run; the Kindle fits in my purse and if I have enough time to really read (I hate reading books in tiny chunks of time), I'll pull it out.
It's the same reason I'm rarely likely to surf the web on the Kindle; the iPhone is far better designed for that.
I can see where this will be nice. There are times I am without my Kindle for one reason or another and find myself sitting thinking, "I wish I had my Kindle." Now I can continue reading until I get back to AIVAS.
I already answered above but was just thinking that this application will be super for all the people complaining in the reviews that Kindle doesn't have a back light and that they read books on their iPhone or iTouch why would they need a Kindle..... remember the more books sold in Kindle version the better - more and more will appear for us to read.
This must have been in the works when Steve Jobs said they wouldn't be developing an ereader - maybe that is why
I don't have and don't want an iphone. I have a kindle for reading, and an ipod for walking (I can't walk fast and read at the same time). this board has me thinking about an Nintendo dsi. that is most likely a fantasy.
I don't have an iPhone (yet), but I am still most likely to remember to bring my kindle than my phone. My phone stays in my jeans pocket and sometimes gets left in a pair of jeans (luckily mom checks pockets before washing). Meanwhile my kindle is always in one of two places....my purse....my messenger bag.
