Kindle app for Android now available for free in the Android Market
If you have been interested in buying a Kindle e-book reader from Amazon, but didn't want to add another device to carry along with your Android phone, the good news today is that Amazon has released a version of Kindle for the Android Market. Even better news is that the download is free. You must have an Android device running 1.6 or higher which just about covers most phones using Google's open source OS. The app will allow you to purchase, browse and search from a library of more than 600,000 books. Amazon's newspaper, magazine and blog library will not be made available to Android users. The Kindle app has already been available for the iPhone and certain BlackBerry devices and will remember the last page you viewed so when you boot up on any platform, it will start your session by opening the app to that page. While the software is free, most premium books will cost you about $10. To install the Kindle book reader for your Android phone, head over to the Android Market, or you can scan the QR code on the source link.

There are some free books on there - books written 80 years ago...good to download to test the app out...a better reader is the NOOK by BARNES and NOBLE - any app for that one, yet?

how good does a reader have to be? its basically just text on a white background right? a few "bookmark tools", a book dl library, and some other minor stuff and *blam* its a bookreader! :)
