The Kindle may not be long for the world. Most of the industry is waiting with bated breath to see if full-function tablets will end up killing the dedicated e-reader. Amazon isn't going to take that sort of chance. They're working on an iPad app, as are Barnes and Noble. The New York Times reports that both retailers (both of whom sell e-readers) are working on dedicated iPad apps.

Amazon's will allow readers to “slowly turn pages” with their fingers (as opposed to instant load times?), and will also include two new ways for people to look at their e-book collection. Amazon's website now has some details on “Kindle apps for tablet computers”.

Less is known about Barnes & Noble's upcoming iPad app. They are re-working their iPhone app to handle the iPad. It will be able to switch through multiple fonts and colors, and may also have some multimedia options for certain books.
