Kindle Reader Comes To Blackberry

It's hard to imagine anyone could possibly read a book on a Blackberry (the least attractive smartphone around),  but with over 420,000 titles available from Amazon, and growing,  it makes sense to make a Free downloadable App and for Amazon to have its books available on as many formats as possible,  especially since the Apple iPad is almost here.

Some are already saying this will compete with the iPad.  No chance!  If you are on the road and you don't have your Kindle, you can still continue reading your book at exactly where you left off on your other device.  It knows this via automatically synchronizing your last page read and annotations between devices with Whispersync  from Amazon.  

While I am sure many will download this App, it is hard to imagine reading a book on such a small screen as the Blackberry Bold or Curve, but the Storm is a little bigger in screen size.  

This is all part of Amazon's strategy to appeal to more users.  The Apple iPad is coming next month and this sector is going to get hot!

Would you read an ebook on such a small screen?
