Amazon has announced today that its Kindle app for iPad is now available in all countries where the iPad is available. The app lets users select from hundreds of thousands of books available in the Kindle Store on iPad and features Amazon Whispersync technology that saves and synchronizes customersâ€™ last page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights across their Kindle, Kindle DX, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, iPad and more.
â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to make Kindle for iPad available to readers around the world,â€ said Jay Marine, director, Amazon Kindle. â€œKindle for iPad includes all the features customers love about Kindle for iPhone, including great selection and synchronization of their books across a variety of Kindle apps, along with a beautiful new user interface tailored to the look and feel of iPad. Kindle for iPad is the perfect companion for the millions of customers who already own a Kindle or Kindle DX, and a way for customers to download and enjoy books even if they donâ€™t yet have a Kindle.â€
I like that last sentence there that implies that the iPad is a temporary stop-gap prior to getting a Kindle!
