May 24, 2010

We mentioned last week that the Amazon Kindle App for Android devices is due to land this summer. That will allow lots more users to access the Kindle bookstore. Asus has announced that it will be including the Kindle app on several of its computers.

The Kindle App will be pre-installed right out of the box on Eee netbooks including the 1005PE and the UL30A-X5K and UL30VT-X1K ultrathin notebooks. The app will let the user read any of the titles from the Kindle bookstore right on the notebook or netbook.

We have talked about the Kindle app for PCs before. It lets the user read the book on the computer and on the Kindle eReader and can synchronize the readers place and book marks between the two devices. Bestseller titles start at $9.99.
