Amazon Launches Kindle App for Blackberry [uk.reuters.com]
Amazon.com said on Thursday it is launching a new free Kindle application that will give customers access to over 420,000 books on a range of BlackBerry devices.
Called "Kindle for Blackberry", the free application allows customers using BlackBerry devices on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and other U.S. carriers easy wireless access to Kindle books, most for $9.99 or less.

"Since the launch of our popular Kindle for iPhone app last year, customers have been asking us to bring a similar experience to the BlackBerry," said Ian Freed, Vice President, Amazon Kindle.

At first I thought kindle was all about selling the physical device, knowing the user was then tied into the service. When it became available for the iPhone this would have allowed amazon to know a little bit about the buying power of apple users. Perhaps this was enough to make them very weary of the ipad. Getting kindle on as many smart devices as possible may now be the goal.

Smartphones growing bigger day by day, and customers going crazy on which one to opt for. iPhone with Opera, Motorola with bing, or now blackberry with kindle...why can't we have all the features on all the smartphones? :P
