Amazon is now offering a free download for their Kindle for BlackBerry app
Cell phones have always been known as the convergence product that really ties a lot of the many gadgets we like. For those who don't fancy the idea of having to shell out some additional scarce cash on Amazon's Kindle, they may be intrigued to find that an app for the popular ebook reader will now also be included to BlackBerry owners. Amazon announced that they are making a BlackBerry version of its ebook reader application to allow users the ability to take along their Kindle content on the go – so this means BlackBerry owners that want a Kindle can actually settle for the app instead. Now the best part of it is that Amazon is making the download free through their web site. Although iPhone owners have been treated to this for quite some time, it's nice to see Amazon branching out to other platforms.  Not all of RIM's smartphones are supported right now – the ones that are include the Bold 9000, Bold 9700, Curve 8520, Curve 8900, Storm 9550, and Tour 9630. Otherwise, owners can expect to see the same level of service they would get on the actual Kindle device on their handsets instead.
