Reading Novels Via Cell...

In Japan a new trend has started...many are reading books via cell phone! Cell phones are now becoming ebooks, where you can download an entire novel to your cell phone and then read at your leisure anywhere at anytime! Soon there will not need to be ebooks or special PDA's to read electronic books, you can now use your cell phone! There are many applications for this in the classroom, especially schools where schools cannot afford hard copy books or textbooks for all their students. Instead students can have all of their class textbooks and novels on their cell phone! No more heavy backpacks to lug around! Even better, this means that students will always have access to their school books via their cell, so they can learn while waiting in line or riding a bus.
