Kindle books with no Kindle?

The NY Times is full of good stuff! In addition to the Lego artist in my earlier post, I also saw an item about Amazon announcing that they plan to make Kindle books available on mobile phones!

So it looks like all those folks who downloaded Stanza to their iPhones have given Jeff Bezos pause. The Kindle model works for older folks with bad eyes but lots of money. Younger folks want convenience, even on an itty bitty screen. If you can sell Kindle books to both, you're in better shape than with just old folks.
