Kindle coming to iPad

By

Amazon has announced Kindle Apps for Tablet Computers, explicitly including the iPad.


The online bookseller promises the Kindle App will give customers "the best reading experience available on your tablet computer including the iPad," with "no Kindle required."

The new app will offer some of the same interface features as the iPad's iBooks, such as the ability to view your library as an array of book covers and the option to turn pages with a realistic paper-turning animation.

It also will support the same features as the existing Kindle app for the iPhone, including the Whispersync technology that keeps track of the last page you read along with notes and bookmarks and sync them among your various reading devices -- Kindle, computer, iPhone, or BlackBerry.

The syncing means you can pick up reading on one device at the place you left off on another.

The app also allows direct purchase of the more than 450,000 Kindle-compatible books in the Amazon store.

The tablet (including iPad) app will be free; no availability date was announced.

INTRODUCING ITWIRE TV

iTWire TV offers a unique value to the Tech Sector by providing a range of video interviews, news, views and reviews, and also provides the opportunity for vendors to promote your company and your marketing messages.

We work with you to develop the message and conduct the interview or product review in a safe and collaborative way. Unlike other Tech YouTube channels, we create a story around your message and post that on the homepage of ITWire, linking to your message.

In addition, your interview post message can be displayed in up to 7 different post displays on our the iTWire.com site to drive traffic and readers to your video content and downloads. This can be a significant Lead Generation opportunity for your business.

We also provide 3 videos in one recording/sitting if you require so that you have a series of videos to promote to your customers. Your sales team can add your emails to sales collateral and to the footer of their sales and marketing emails.

See the latest in Tech News, Views, Interviews, Reviews, Product Promos and Events. Plus funny videos from our readers and customers.
