I have only recently bought an iPhone, but I agree it is a radically different tool. The mapping with current location via cell towers is very useful and search, although slow, is just what I need when mobile. I've said it before, but these are the functions that Kindle should be focused on, not just reading books. Itt is quite clear that even with the size of the iPhone screen, it would be way better with a screen about as large as a ppb book, and when we get flexible OLED screens, then as large as A4 or better.

A device that allows mapping and navigation, search and good quality reading of documents is when these devices will need to go. The phone, with attendant texting, will just be a minor part of the mix.

I'll second, third and fourth that. I'm a Touch user by choice, since I was locked into a family phone plan that I didn't want to break. But I use it extensively as a pocket computer/browser. And now with the January upgrade pack, it's even more delightful an experience. Enjoy!

Oh, and Alex, you might be interested to experience the iPhone or Touch accessing documents via Google Docs on the Pink Cloud. It's a lovely thing. And it works.
