The Amazon Kindle application is now available for smartphones running Google’s Android.
Yesterday Amazon announced the release of a new Kindle reading application, called Kindle for Android, that is available as a free download for phones running Google’s Android software.
As with other Kindle applications, users will be able to download books they have started reading on other devices
directly to their mobile phones and save their place across other devices using Amazon’s Whispersync system.
This new announcement puts Amazon farther ahead of its competitors in offering a read-everywhere experience. For those who do not want to buy a Kindle reading device or don’t want to carry it everywhere, there are Kindle applications for all versions of the Apple iPhone, the iPad, PC and Mac computers, BlackBerry cellphones and now a range of Android-powered phones.
