A Kindle, iPhone or a big-screen iRex or other device—which would you
rather read an e-newspaper on? It’s a case-by-case decision, of course.

While TeleRead focuses on e-books most often, I’d be curious to know
how TeleCommunity members are getting their e-news. I myself am using
an iPod Touch and tend to favor the New York Times mobile site, because

edition, though supposedly optimized for the iPhone/Touch when it
detects the related browser, is clunky by comparison. I also continue
to be a big fan of the AP app for the iPhone.
