it's actually been around for a bit, and there is ways for you to get it in america, it's just publically announced or very popular. i forget where, but i did read u can get them i think on AT&T. or somewhere, i could be horribly wrong, but hey.
i personally don't like the idea, just because cell phone screens are way to small, and the fact that i love owning the books, i mean, everyone says we're blind already, why give us another option of our eyes falling out of our heads?

Woah. Cell phone novels? Sounds interesting.
But I think I'll stick to old-fashioned, low-tech, regular books, thank you very much.

I read a story about cellphone novels last year. It's a pretty interesting phenomenon.

I mixed feelings about this news; on the bright side, more people are rediscovering an interest in reading (and the cell phone industry is making a killing off of their loyal readers). On the negative side, this also implies that people are looking at virtual screens for an extended duration of time (again) and that more people are going to have to visit their eye doctors more often. (Even though that last comment also applies to those who are gazing into books and manga for too long! ^_~)

I prefer books.
There's an idea that North America can use. It would be awesome if there's also cell phone comics as well.

I'd rather read a book as an actual book. I once tried to read a novel for a class online and kept losing my place every time I had to scroll down. C'mon, the technological advancements in some things are wonderful, but let's keep some things the old-fashioned way. Besides, texts are limited to words and characters; wouldn't that be tricky? "It ws th wrst of tms; it ws th bst of tms." Looks ridiculous.

Sounds like a nice idea.. And it makes reading a novel so much easier because don't have to carry a bulky book around.
