Amazon free Kindle for PC application now available
Amazon.com, Inc. has announced the availability of "Kindle for PC," the free application that lets readers around the world access Kindle books on their personal computers. Kindle books can now be read on the Kindle, Kindle DX, iPhone, iPod touch and PC.

Kindle for PC is now available as a free download to readers in over 100 countries.

The U.S. Kindle Store currently offers more than 360,000 books, including New Releases and 101 of 112 New York Times Bestsellers, which are typically US$9.99 or less.

Kindle for PC features Amazonís Whispersync technology that automatically saves and synchronizes bookmarks and last page read across devices. Whether you read Kindle books on a Kindle, Kindle DX, or one of the free Kindle applications, you can always have your reading with you and never lose your place. With Kindle for PC, you can read some on your PC, read some on your Kindle, and always pick up right where you left off. Whispersync helped make the Kindle for iPhone application the most popular books app in the Apple App Store.

"Kindle for PC is the perfect companion application for customers who own a Kindle or Kindle DX," said Ian Freed, vice president, Amazon Kindle. "Kindle for PC is also a great way for people around the world to access a huge selection from the Kindle Store and read the most popular books of today even if they donít yet have a Kindle."

With Kindle for PC, readers can purchase, download and read books available in the Kindle Store, and includes the ability to read the beginning of any book for free before they buy.

The software allows readers to access their library of previously purchased Kindle books stored on Amazonís servers for free.

The software runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. Users running Windows 7 have extra features, including multitouch capabilities.
