There is another element of board/card/tabletop/etc gaming that can not be easily incorporated into computerized format - the psychological. Sure, you can play diplomacy by email, but it loses the element of lie-detection. There are other games, such as Battlestar Galactica, Werewolf, Coup, The Resistance, Liar's Dice, Skull & Roses, and Intrigue, where this is a major part of the game.

Reading e-books two or three lines at a time on a 3.2-inche screen would turn anyone off of reading

I prefer to read on my phone over any other format. I can hold it and turn pages with one hand, and since only one paragraph fits on a page, I never lose my place even if I am distracted. I read MUCH faster on my phone than when reading from a paper book.

My current phone is bigger, but I read many books on my Iphone 3, with a screen size of only 3.5 inches, so I think the experience would be similar with these small phones.

And I am not alone, e-reader apps have always been among the most popular.
