We already knew that the App Store would bring about an onslaught of tip calculators and mobile games, but it has also become the territory of ultra-affordable reading as well. Whereas the Amazon Kindle is dedicated to the art of e-books, the iPhone is supposed to offer a lot more. It just happens to do books too.

All they have to do is “re-box” them, so to speak, before selling through through the Apple online store for 99 cents each. The e-books that you’ll find include stuff like Dickens and Tarzan.
The text is said to look pretty crisp and the relatively large display of the iPhone makes for a pleasurable read as well. And you might look a little sexier staring at your iPhone than at your Kindle.
