Amazon Brings the Kindle App to Windows Phone 7

Amazon’s Kindle app now works on at least 11 different platforms with the addition of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 today. The apps allow you to start an e-book on one platform and then continue reading it where you left off on another. Features include the ability to synch bookmarks, notes and highlights. Yesterday, Amazon also confirmed that in addition to supporting the iPad, it will tailor the apps for upcoming Android and Windows-based tablet computers. At this point, it’s clear Amazon sees value in supporting all platforms. Rather than be discriminating, it’s trying to sell as many books as it can on as many platforms as a customer may want to read them.
