BlackBerry users can now read eBooks from Amazon.com on their smartphone, as the eBookseller launched today its “Kindle for BlackBerry” app.
The Kindle app is now offered across numerous devices including the iPhone, iPod Touch, PCs and Kindle eReaders and it will soon be available for the Apple iPad and Mac, said Amazon.
BlackBerry users can now read eBooks between meetings said Kindle VP Ian Freed (yes, he did actually say that). “Since the launch of our popular Kindle for iPhone app last year, customers have been asking us to bring a similar experience to the BlackBerry,” he said.
The app allows users to download eBooks over-the-air and to read them on the BlackBerry. Users can search through more than 420,000 titles including 102 of the 112 New York Times best sellers. Users can also “browse” through books from within the Kindle app.
