Textbooks on the iPhone Take on the Kindle DX
That's a big (no pun intended) issue, one would think, with trying to read a textbook on an iPhone. To be honest, that's why the Kindle DX was developed; even the original Kindle / Kindle 2's screen was not big enough.
Besides the Kindle and Kindle DX, Amazon.com has its own e-book app as well. Both Amazon's and CourseSmart's iPhone apps are free.
This is probably more of an addendum than a replacement for a Kindle or Kindle DX or a full-sized textbook. Besides the iPhone app, you can also download a version for your PC or view textbooks online.
I'm still not convinced e-books will replace textbooks, but I suppose it will depend on a number of factors:
- title availability
- user experience
