Stanza 1.4 is now downloadable from the iPhone App Store.
As noted here earlier, it offers colorful displays of book covers and helps pave the way for public domain books to have a much more polished feel.
It’s almost as if you’re in an online bookstore.
Just how long until commercial publishers start using Stanza to sell and distribute their wares as nonDRMed ePub? And how will the terms compare to those of Amazon and others?
At any rate, keep in mind the math. Tens of millions of iPhones are out there, and if just a fraction of the users try e-books, this could be a nice-sized niche at the very least.
