Comment of the Day: Sync Kindle With iPhone

Our fourth daily Comments Competition winner is Chuck Lawson, for his comment on our post Is the iPhone the Ultimate eBook Reader?. Congratulations Chuck, you’ve won a $30 Amazon voucher, courtesy of our competition sponsors AdaptiveBlue and their Amazon WishList Widget. Chuck noted that the Kindle is better for eBooks, but the iPhone is always with him. So why not enable syncing between the two? He wrote:

“I’ve had both since the first day they were out (I’m a gadget junkie, I guess :-), and I like them both a lot.

The Kindle is a great reading experience; I’ve probably gone through 30 – 40 books on it already. Given a choice between the two devices, if I’m sitting down to ready, I’d rather read on the Kindle.

On the other hand, the iPhone is always with me, and the Kindle isn’t.

What would be really slick would be if the iPhone and Kindle would both support Mobipocket format books (which is also the Kindle’s native format), and iTunes could be used to sync both devices, keeping “last read” pointers in the same way it does with audiobooks and podcasts now.

That way you could sit down with either device, and pick up where you left off.

Doubt we’ll ever see it, but it’d be terrific if it happened.”
