Offline bookstores, beware…

Ever since discovering how much cheaper it was to order my foreign books from amazon instead of buying at the overpriced import bookstores in the city, i was wondering when it will be possible to check the price of the book on amazon on the road. Imagine, you’re standing in the overpriced bookstore and considering a purchase – but you keep having second thoughts about whether it would be much cheaper to buy from amazon instead. Until recently, you had to put back the book, leave the store, go home, check the amazon site, and then either go back to the store or buy from home. Now, thanks to the Pricenoia Mobile app you can check prices real time on your mobile, from multiple amazon stores. A brilliant application (and not surprisingly, relies on affiliate revenues from amazon to earn $$$…).
