Android-using book lovers rejoice! Amazon has announced that Kindle will soon come to Android phones in the Kindle for Android app.
Currently, Amazon features Kindle apps for Windows, Mac OS X, and a limited number of mobile devices, but this app is the first for Android. The new app will allow users to some of the features of the Kindle without paying for an actual Kindle. According to Amazon, the Kindle for Android, like all Kindle apps, includes "Whispersync technology, which automatically synchronises your last page read, bookmarks, notes and highlights across your Kindle and Kindle-compatible devices including PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry." You will also be able to browse books, access their other Kindle books without a Kindle, add bookmarks, read in portrait or landscape mode, as well as other features.
The Kindle for Android requires Android OS 1.6 or greater, an SD card, and supports Droid Incredible, Google Nexus One, HTC MyTouch, Motorola CLIQ, Motorola Droid and many more Android phones.
