I just posted about the Amazon Kindle iPhone application availability and now I'll take you on a walk through the software and let you also see how it works with a Kindle 2 device. As you can see in my image gallery the software is easy to use and gives you all your Kindle ebook content on the iPhone. I am not sure if newspapers or magazines are supported yet, but plan to try that out soon as well. You can see in the video how the Whispersync technology keeps the Kindle 2 and iPhone in sync so no matter where you are or what device you have with you at the moment (Kindle or iPhone) you can always maintain your current location in your book.
The availability of the Kindle 2 was the big tech news of the week and James, Kevin, and I chatted about my Kindle 2 and our thoughts on the new ebook reader in MobileTechRoundup show #163. We also chatted about the ebook options on the iPhone and other mobile devices, including Stanza and eReader. Priced Android apps are also now available, but it sure seems like hardware and software is progressing slowly here. James introduced a new freeware, Doubletwist, that actually looks like a lifesaver for me and all my mobile devices as it brings you the capability to transfer media content from your Mac to a number of mobile devices, with conversion integrated in the software. BTW, DVD Jon is a part of this software so that tells you something.
