I can't wait for the 3.0 upgrade. I noticed a lot of my apps have had updates in the last week, but especially in the last few days.

I got in on the $99 iPhone upgrade last week - made sure I could return it if I didn't like it but now they'll have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands.  And my husband is saying "Told you so!"

I wouldn't go THAT far, LOL, but I do like some of the other reading apps I've already found for reading the public domain stuff. I still wouldn't want to read on it for a long time, but for short reads, I'm enjoying it a lot!

If I had to choose between the Kindle and the iPhone, the Kindle would lose. I'm so excited about both the upgrade and the new iPhone. I'll be upgrading tomorrow and then getting my new iPhone within the next 2 -3 weeks. My husband keeps telling me I have to wait until my birthday, but I don't think I can wait that long (July 10).

I use the Kindle app far more than I ever expected to. The synching between devices makes it so easy to bounce between the two.

Have to look at that. I've been playing with the Moron Test and just finally discovered Pandora. Can't believe what I was missing without that! My daughter is in heaven with Pandora.

Is it sad that I'm planning on waiting up until midnight to see if the release it at 12:01?

I have been so disappointed that the books that I have on my kindle that didn't come from Amazon are not able to be read on my iphone with the kindle app.  I love picking up my iphone to pick up where I left off on the kindle.  I was reading Waiting for Spring which was a great book and discovered I couldn't get it on the iphone. What a disappointment.  And I think Amazon might even sell it but I didn't buy it there.

Use Stanza, that is what I use for my non Amazon books. The app has some features that the kindle app doesn't like tags and folders.

I'm reading on the iPhone too but not with the Kindle app. I'm just reading a different book from what I read on the Kindle. There are a lot of book apps, I've got Wattpad and a couple of others, haven't figured out which I like best yet. Does the Kindle app scroll as you read?

Yeah, so not happy about the MMS delay. My family texts so much that the MMS is a necessity. Can't wait for that.
That's the one thing I'm not so crazy about with it - texting is MUCH slower for me than on my Treo. I'll be very happy when the MMS comes out.

The one thing I love about texting on the iPhone is the chat bubble format. It makes it so much easier to keep track of conversations. Sometimes I get an answer an hour or two after I've sent the text and don't remember what the question was. Super simple to switch from person to person too.

My Treo was pretty easy to keep up with as far as texting went, I could just scroll up to follow the discussion. But the iPhone is pretty intuitive - not surprising since it's from Apple.
My husband just saw that there's an app for Sirius/XM radio coming out - exciting since we both have XM in our cars!
