Skiff: Not Just an eReader

Harry McCracken talks Skiff. Apparently he got a sneak peak of Skiff running on a Tablet PC and word that WebOS and Blackberry apps are under development as well. While I can kinda see skipping Windows Mobile or whatever it's called these days - where's the iPhone and Android love?

To me, Skiff sounds like the platform that Blio should have been. Improved formatting (which is still more important for newspapers and magazines than books - although I see the textbook argument as well), and wide platform support including eReaders. Blio doesn't seem to think it's important - me, I figure most hardcore eReading folks are reading on eReaders. But that's just me...
