Amazon to bring Kindle app to Blackberry Playbook
A few hours ago, RIM officially unveiled their first ever tablet, the Blackberry Playbook, and I am honestly speaking that it’s a one sexy beast. And the one of the first companies to launch their app for Playbook is Amazon. Amazon has announced that they will bring the Amazon Kindle App to Blackberry Playbook, which is we all know a very popular application, and it’s especially for book lovers. And I am sure that a lot of other big companies developers are also working on apps for Playbook, so we are going to see some good apps for Playbook in future. If you don’t believe me, then watch the press release after the break:
SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) today announced that it will launch a Kindle app for the new BlackBerry PlayBook tablet computer. Customers can already enjoy the free Kindle app on their BlackBerry today. Like all Kindle apps, the Kindle app for the new BlackBerry PlayBook will let customers Buy Once, Read Everywhere—on Kindle, Kindle 3G, Kindle DX, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, PC, BlackBerry, Android-based devices, and in the coming months, the new BlackBerry PlayBook.
