First Arabic Book for the iPhone: Test it Now

I am still on the road (and a long road to follow), baffled and jetlagged, but saw an update from developer Salman S. Qadeer just now, to the effect that KotobArabia has up the first Arabic book for the iPhone: 1,001 Nights.

KotobArabia’s Ramy Habeeb recently told Publishing Perspectives that the iPad version is soon to follow.

I am unfortunately unfamiliar with the iPhone (I have an ancient mobile that can only telephone people and send plain-text messages, and perhaps the odd smiley face), but this seems like a great leap forward for Arabic-book technology.

I look forward to hearing more in this vein, and perhaps trying out an iPhone on my travels….
