Amazon Released Kindle for iPhone and iPod touch

Amazon has released Kindle reader on iPhone and iPod touch. Called simply Kindle for iPhone, the free app is now available on the App Store

.

Arriving few weeks after Amazon launched its new Kindle 2 device, this expands Amazon’s e-book content to reach more than its own Kindle device. As promised during the Kindle 2 launch event, we can expect Kindle support to come to other mobile device.

The Kindle iPhone app does not connect to Kindle Store yet. You have to visit the Kindle Store via website to purchase ebook. The app also does not support text-to-speech feature as in the Kindle 2 device. Other than that, this is great news for Kindle users and potentially could turn many iPhone owners to the Kindle platform.
