How does Whispersync for voice work?

I'm thinking that I might want to try being able to both read and listen to a book in turn, that Whispersync for voice thing Amazon is pushing. I've got a Kindle Keyboard, and I suppose I could authorize my droid with Audible so I could put the audible files on my phone...

But I'm not sure how this process works. Once I've stopped listening, do I have to connect to Amazon to tell them where I left off so my file on my K3 will jump to that place? and if so, how do I do that? I've never listened to books on anything but my iPod Nano (which isn't covered as one of the synch-able devices), and have no idea how I'd download an audiobook to my phone, much less synch it to Amazon.

And then, to pick up reading on my K3, do I have to connect to anything special in Amazon to get the K3 to jump to the specific page I want? or do I just turn on wifi and it will work automagically?

Has anyone tried both listening to and reading a book with this new feature? how well does it work? (I'll have to buy a new copy of the ebook, I suspect, but the one I want to try this with is only $6, so it's worth it for the experiment.)
