The Kindle app is already available on the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, PC, Mac, and BlackBerry, so Android is quite late to the party. Better late than never though - there is no WinMo app anywhere in sight.
The Android application is, surprisingly, not going to be shy on features. In fact, some of them will one-up its counterparts on other platforms:
- access all of your Kindle books without your Kindle
- buy books right from within the Kindle app from a special Android optimized store and get them auto-delivered wirelessly - a feature that is not available on all devices
- synchronize last page read and annotations between all devices using Amazon's "Whispersync" technology
- preview books by reading their beginnings for free before buying
In order to use the app, you will need to use Android 1.6+ and have an SD card (Droid Incredible users, take note - your phone doesn't come with an SD card by default).
