Amazon Kindle now available on Windows Phone 7
Posted on 6-Jan-2011 09:40 | Tags Filed under: News



Customers can already read Kindle books on their Kindle, Kindle 3G, Kindle DX, as well as their iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, PC, Mac, BlackBerry and Android-based devices. Today, Amazon's wide selection of free "Buy Once, Read Everywhere" Kindle apps is expanding to include Windows Phone 7 devices.

The company says Kindle for Windows Phone 7 is the first major eBook application available for Windows Phone 7, and includes new features built into a Kindle app for the first time, including personalized recommendations integrated into the Kindle app home screen and the ability to send book recommendations to a friend without leaving the app.

"With Kindle books you never have to worry about what to do if you change devices or platforms. Our free 'Buy Once, Read Everywhere' apps make it easy for you to read your books on any device you choose - your Kindle, Kindle 3G, Kindle DX, iPad, iPhone, PC, Mac, BlackBerry, Android-based device, and now your Windows Phone 7-based device," said Dorothy Nicholls, Director, Amazon Kindle. "We think customers are going to love our new Kindle app on the unique interface of Windows Phone 7 and the convenience of our Whispersync technology, which saves and synchronizes your bookmarks, notes and highlights between all of your devices."

Kindle for Windows Phone 7 offers seamless integration with Kindle, Amazon's purpose-build reading device. Amazon's Whispersync technology lets you read and sync your library, bookmarks, notes, and highlights with the devices and platforms of your choice (Kindle, Kindle 3G, Kindle DX, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, PC, Mac, BlackBerry, Android-based devices, and Windows Phone 7-based devices).

Kindle automatically backs up your Kindle library on Amazon, so your books can be re-downloaded wirelessly anytime.
