Amazon buys Lexcycle, is Kindle content coming to Stanza on the iPhone?

I am very happy with my Kindle 2 device and even more happy that I can read my Kindle content on the iPhone. As I pointed out in my iPhone Kindle application review the application is fairly basic and not the best ebook reader application for the iPhone. Stanza is arguably the best iPhone ebook application and yesterday we heard that the developers of Stanza, Lexcycle, was acquired by Amazon. The Lexcycle blog states that the application will continue to be offered and customers can still buy content from partners to use with Stanza.

There is no word that Amazon will update their Kindle application with Stanza or offer Kindle content through Stanza, but I am sure most iPhone owners sure are hoping this will be the case in the near future. It makes logical sense that this would happen eventually since Amazon wants to sell Kindle ebook content. I think this is great news for Lexcycle since it is highly unlikely that Amazon bought them to shut down the best ebook reader on the iPhone, but to expand their Kindle content to more mobile devices.
