Like much of the publishing world, I’m eager to hear about Amazon’s latest version of the Kindle. But that’s not the only news today. I’m sitting here at TOC and talking to John Chodacki from Safari Books Online and, with a smile on his face, he’s showing me beta version of m.safaribooksonline.com. (In full disclosure, Safari is a joint venture between O’Reilly and Pearson.)
The smile is well deserved. It looks great, it’s fast, and I love the stripped-down navigation and lack of clutter. It’s got a couple of bugs, and I don’t like that I can’t read our highly designed Head First books, but it’s a Beta.
The mobile version will be released on 23 February, and if you’re a Safari subscriber and have feedback, send it to safarimobile AT safaribooksonline DOT com. If you’re not already a subscriber, you can get a free trial.
