Kindle App for Android Coming Soon
May 20, 2010 6:57 AM –
Kindle recently announced an app for Android phones to download, manage and read e-books. The app will be free and available in limited quantities projected for this summer. Users will be able to access some Kindle features like browsing books, access previous purchases, add bookmarks, browsing by author/genre, read Amazon consumer and editorial reviews, and get personal recommendations.
The app will not have Kindle newspapers, magazines and blogs. However Christopher Dawson of ZDNet brings up a good point, will this mobile device convergence kill the Kindle device as there will be no need to buy/carry the larger device around… simply read your books on your phone. What do you think?
