Amazon Kindle App for WP7 Demoed at PDC (Updated with video)
There are a number of applications that lend themselves perfectly to a Smartphone; Ebook readers are toward the top of the list. Though many of us would still prefer having a physical book in hand, the convenience offered by having a dozen different books readily available on your Smartphone is tough to argue with.
One of the largest players in the Ebook (and traditional book) market announced their support for Windows Phone 7 at Microsoft’s PDC (Professional Developer’s Conference) this week in Redmond. Amazon’s Kindle app (no relation to WP7 heavy hitter Charlie Kindel) is one of the premier platforms for Ebooks available. Kindle for Windows Phone will support Amazon’s Whispersync technology which allows you to keep your place in a book across devices.
The Kindle app is “Coming Soon” to the Marketplace. More details are available from Amazon. View the PDC Day 1 keynote here.
