This is far from the Mobipocket for iPhone client people have been demanding.
Well, I can manage to free my purchased .prc from drm. Since I have a jailbroken iPhone, I will try to ssh or iphonebrowser my .prc to the archived items folder, locally inside the iPhone. I'll test this theory on the coming weekend.

I managed to ssh my jailbroken iPhone - after installing SSH to the iPhone via Cydia. With an iMac, I opened Terminal, and ssh root@ipaddress. Then I go to the Kindle\Document\Ebooks and copy 3 free .prc from the other thread here.
When I open Kindle app in my iPhone, there are 3 covers for 3 prcs, and I can read them well.
Not yet the ultimate mobireader for iPhone, but iPhone owners can surely make use of Kindle for iPhone to store their unDRMed prc.
