Kindle for iPhone. What am I missing?

I have been following the e-book "wars" for a while now. The technology side of these devices has me very excited. I have had many conversations over the last month regarding my dream e-book reader. I want color. I want touch screen. I want wireless content delivery. After looking over Crunch Gear's e-book reader comparison chart it was clear a winner has not arrived.

Fast forward a few weeks to a meeting I was in last night. Like any good meeting attendee I stared down at my iPhone seeking an escape from reality. My latest escape comes in the form of "cheap" apps from the iPhone App store. As I was digging around I came across Kindle for iPhone. Have I had my dream e-book reader in my pocket for every one of the dream e-book conversations I have had? I spend no less than 2 hours per day reading news, tweets and emails this way. Can I read a book like this?

I loaded up a couple of free books from the Kindle store. I read. I kept reading. I think I like this.
