Maps on the Kindle?
I'm not sure I see the market here. The display on the 1st-generation Kindle is somewhat limited; probably not particularly well-suited for displaying maps. But at a $1.99, maybe these will sell like iPhone apps. I just ordered the free sample of the Northern California map - will post screenshots later.
