I have a pretty limited understanding of how kindle storage/sync etc work so sorry if this is a dumb question...
I have an iPhone with kindle currently, and am considering getting a xoom. Will I be able to sync between the two, and if so how 'hands off' is the process?
I'm guessing amazon has the info on what books I own, so it would be easy to get those onto the xoom initially-but will it also keep all my bookmarks, highlights, last page read etc? And if I read one of my books on the iphone and then use the xoom later, will it sync to the last page i read on the phone?
It doesn't happen automagically. You have to "sync" the book(s) you are reading. I don't think it syncs bookmarks either but I might be wrong.
I often lately am reading the same book on either my Kindle, Xoom or DroidX and it's pretty easy to "find your place" particularly is you stop at a chapter beginning between reads.
