New e-reader app for iPhones

Iphone All you lucky iPhone owners who like to read get a new application to play with, and I hate you all for it. Publisher's Weekly reports that ScrollMotion (an application development company) has created Iceberg, an e-reader with titles from six publishers (Random House, Hachette, Penguin, Counterpoint, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Simon & Schuster).

Prices of the downloaded books, though, aren't as cheap as Kindle downloads (which usually sell for around $9.99); they're more like the actual retail prices.

You can read more here.

So while I'm horribly jealous of your iPhones, I have to say that the idea of reading, say, the 800-page plus Shadow Country on that small device leaves me cold.

Try it once and you'll be hooked. Even movies look crystal clear on these electronic marvels.
