    Amazon's Kindle app coming to Android


    Amazon has announced that it will soon be porting it's popular Kindle App to the Android platform. The new Android book reader will also allow you to preview, and purchase books directly from Amazon’s Kindle bookstore all from the comfort of your Droid. While having the ability to run this app on an Android phone is nice, I think Amazon has another agenda and preparing for the release of many Android Tablets expected to launch later this year. Some of the features of the Kindle App will include:

    • Get the best reading experience available on your Android phone. No Kindle required
    • Access your Kindle books even if you don't have your Kindle with you
    • Automatically synchronizes your last page read and annotations between devices with Whispersync
    • Adjust the text size, add bookmarks, and view the annotations you created on your Kindle, computer, or other Kindle-compatible device
    • Read in portrait or landscape mode
    • Tap on either side of the screen or flick to turn pages

    That is cool, and mostly good news in the way of knowing big names want to join hands with android. However, I don't see reading books on my tiny droid screen comfortably?!

    I agree on the size. Anyone here done this on the iPhone, it's about the same size, any thoughts on how it worked in that size? (I think iPhone has Kindle).

    it actually not that bad to read on phones.. it works when you are at doctors offfice or something like that.. the bigger market will be the android tablets like stated in op.. still excited... i would say those people who would own an android tablet would own a android based phone so you would always have your book with you.. makes it real handy

    Wow, I'm looking forward to this. I have a Kindle, and had the Kindle app on my ipod touch before I got my Droid. It was a small screen, and I wouldn't want to do a long stretch of reading on it, but it will be great for those time when I don't have my kindle, and have a few minutes to read.

    Question. Do you have to purchase a Kindle or can you just use the app and purchase the books and use your Droid? The link for more information is dead.

    I didn't think of that I hope you don't have to purchase the tablet. Money is money from a phone or the tablet.
