Amazon launches Kindle for BlackBerry, free download

It seems that Amazon decided to port their e-book reader application to BlackBerry. Even in its Beta stage, Kindle for BlackBerry allows the users to read over 400,000 e-books on their BlackBerry devices. The application uses Amazon’s Whispersync technology that allows full bookmark syncronization across all devices including Apple’s iPad, PC, Kindle, BlackBerry and iPhone. Of course, the application will allow the customers to read the beginning of any e-book before they actually buy it or adjust the text size.

There is alot of buzz around this release and even if this is only a marketing “glitch”, users can only benefit from this application and its platform porting.
