Books On Phones

Google and Amazon are both making ebooks available to mobile phones. The action of reading books on mobile phones may not seem like the type of interaction or participatory learning that museums may strive for, but I do believe that this development is worth mentioning on this site. First of all, the story is a perfect caption for my logo above (ha!). More significantly, the availability of books on mobile phones adds to the variety of resources available to museum visitors. A mobile phone ebook can certainly supplement an exhibit interaction or museum conversation.
