You can set the font size the same as a physical book, then just tap one side of the screen to switch pages.

Not all Android phones are 3 inch. The Evo 4G is 4.3inch OLED. The Droid X is 4.3inch AMOLED. Sharper screens, easier on the eye.

it's awesome.
I was watching Diggnation and they were saying the same thing - "I can't see anyone reading an entire book on that stupid thing."

I've reading about a dozen books through my iPhone. It's awesome. Especially now with the new Retina Display for 4, the text is baby butt smooth when you increase the font size. I'm sure it looks fantastic on the other screens like the EVO's OLED screen - *drools*

Amazon's Kindle stuff is great. It's the best ebook system ever. It's good to see it on all these platforms and devices. I hope it becomes like the standard for ebooks.

yeah I've went through 2 Kindles until I got the iPhone app. Now I don't use them at all.

I brought a ebook 2 weeks back that comes in mobi format. It works great from my PC but I can't sync it so it works on my Android phone. Anyway I can add this book since it did not come from the kindle store?

I agree. I find the screen of my 3gs Iphone to small. But its good in a pinch. I need to get some sort of tablet device to start taking advantage of the ebook trend.... Having said that the ipad isnt it.

Just to pick nitts, but the EVO 4G does not have an OLED screen, its a standard LCD. The Incredible, and Nexus One( to name a few) are OLED.

It took this long to make a kindle app for android... are you serious? What was difficult about programming an app to display books on a screen?
