    Sounds like a load of arse to me.



    Maybe because Kindle is not touch screen, nor is LCD at all..?

    I think suing Apple because the iPhone can display ebooks is insane. I have been reading ebooks on a Windows Mobile enabled smartphone since a couple of years before the first iPhones became available in the United States. Why would Switzerland-based MONEC Holding Ltd accuse Apple of patent infringement when any smartphone capable of running PDF or CHM reading software makes an effective ebook reader?
