    Today’s snail mail included a promotional brochure from Sprint. Among the toys it was touting was the Kindle. that’s no surprise since it runs on their network. But it made me wonder – why no Kindle apps for Sprint smartphones? They have two Instincts models, the Palm Pre on the way, and a truckload of Blackberries and Windows Mobile devices. And yet, there’s an app for the iPhone.

    I can read every other format on my smartphone. Why not Kindle? Methinks someone is missing out on making some money.
