And the new Gphone doesn’t seem to have an e-reader on it yet, but Galleycat points out a neat function it does have:
“Barcode Scanner allows you to ‘scan’ a book’s barcode using the phone’s camera, then brings up its Amazon page or a nearby retail location on Google Maps. We tried it on a few review books we have lying around (including some that aren’t out yet), and it worked every time.”
That’s a great idea.
