Although not everybody out there loves Amazon and its Kindle ebook store, there's no denying the fact this is one of the best places to get your books from, so Verizon Wireless and Amazon.com have come together to add the Kindle for Android app on the application screen of some of their best selling smartphones based on Google's mobile OS.
This actually means that Samsung Fascinate users as well as Motorola Droid 2 and Droid X owners can now browse, download and start reading their favorite books directly from their Android phone
without having to search trough the Android Market in order to find this app.
Apart from providing users with access to more then 700,000 books, the Kindle app also comes with the Whispersync technology to sync bookmark across devices (so you can pick up where you left off) as well as the Worry-Free Archive, that automatically backs up online books purchased from the Kindle Store so they can be re-downloaded at any time.
"We're very excited to bring Kindle for Android directly to Verizon Wireless customers," said Jennifer Byrne, executive director, business development and partnerships for Verizon Wireless
"Our smartphones come with great screens that make buying and reading books simple and easy, and Amazon's commitment to reading and offering a seamless customer experience is directly in line with what our customers want."
Although this is certainly a nice feature if you are a Kindle fan, this app is also available in the Android Market so if your phone doesn't come with Kindle for Android pre-installed you can still download it from there.
