Amazon Releases Kindle App for Android Phones - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com

Another Kindle milestone

This new announcement puts Amazon farther ahead of its competitors in offering a read-everywhere experience. For those who do not want to buy a Kindle reading device or don’t want to carry it everywhere, there are Kindle applications for all versions of the Apple iPhone, the iPad, PC and Mac computers, BlackBerry cellphones and now a range of Android-powered phones.

By way of comparison, books purchased from the Apple iBookstore can only be read on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

In an Amazon press release, Dorothy Nicholls, who is responsible for the Kindle business, said, “Our customers tell us they love the convenience of having their Kindle library with them everywhere and their reading synchronized across multiple devices.”
