Amazon doesn't, currently, support emailing content to the iPhone Kindle application.

I just looked at my "manage my kindle" page and you are correct, we can't assign a Kindle email address to an iPhone or iPod Touch.. Thanks for the correction.

I wonder if there is a way to register an iphone as a kindle in the 'Manage your Kindle' section.

It's not that hard to scp books to my phone, but the title/author metadata is getting screwed up. Everytime I start up kindle.app on my phone, it opens the same book (not the last one I was reading). Maybe I need to try calibre instead of stanza for converting files...

Nope. You would need a Kindle serial number which is not similar to an iPhone serial number (or UDID). Plus you can only register an iPhone or iPod Touch from within the Kindle for iPhone app.

I just read the same thing today in a different thread, so this must be correct.

I experienced the same issue with Kindle app on my iPhone 2G and 3G. Both are registered in Amazon, and I can buy books (using Gift Certificate loophole as I'm not in US), and I tried to email myiphonename@kindle.com and myiphonename@free.kindle.com. Nada. THe mail were sent, but no reply at all.
On the Kindle app hang opening ebook, I experienced it with the free ebook Resonance by Chris Dolley. Upon checking the header, it was indeed the TEXtREAd header that is causing this. I run mobi2mobi gui and get a new file with MOBI as header. All good now as I can just iphonebrowser-copy the new .mobi to the eBooks directory of the Kindle app.
For the metadata, using mobipocket creator, we can make sure the metadata is the same with the original file, if needed be, up to the ISBN entry.
As someone here mentioned in earlier post, I learned something new today.

I was corrected earlier in this thread that the email option is not availbel for iphone or ipods.

I'll go back and edit my original post.
