Amazon’s release of Kindle 2 was followed swiftly by their release of the Kindle application for iPod Touch/iPhone, letting you read your current and new Kindle ebooks on your iPod Touch.
But wait, there’s more? Yesterday Thomas Nelson Publishers finally did what ebook enthusiasts have been waiting for: pay for a book once, and get it in multiple formats. One of the things holding back adoption of ebooks is the current practice to sell books by their format instead of by their content. That is, if you want a hardcover edition, and audiobook and an ebook version you have to buy each separately. The more sensible approach? If you want to buy a “book,” buy it – then get it in hardcover, audio, and ebook. Pay one price – get them all. Duh!
