iPad screenshots

I'm not one of the fortunate few who got an iPad Saturday. But I am lucky enough to know several generous people who took screen shots for me. I'm posting a selection of those screenshots as side by side comparisons of the Kindle, iBooks, and Kobo apps. BTW, if you want to take screenshots of your iPad, click here for the instructions. Pictures are after the break.

The first image shows the Kindle and Kobo bookshelves, and the second image shows 2 different views of the iPad bookshelf.

The second set compares the bookstores. The Kindle Store is actually in the browser. I like it, but it's really not optimized for touchscreens. The Kobo Bookstore and iBookstore are both in the apps.

The Kindle app and iBooks both support landscape and portrait modes. Unfortunately, the Kindle app doesn't have a multi-column or 2 page view. This is a deficiency it shares with the Kindle DX.

This last image shows the Kindle app with both the largest and smallest font sizes.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
