Book Geek Wednesday: Ebooks for the Masses

This week saw the release of the official Amazon Kindle app for Android.

This may not seem like such a big deal, seeing how reading apps are available on iPhones, iPads, iPods, and a slew of other i-things, not to mention the dedicated e-readers. The big difference here is that the Kindle app for Android is the only e-reading app for Android phones (ie. Droid, Incredible, Evo 4G, MyTouch 3G & Slide) that can read DRM protected works without stripping the digital rights mark.

This is a big deal.

This means that all the latest releases are now available at our fingertips at reasonable Kindle prices. On top of that, it leads the pack as the prime e-book app with the most variety and distribution, since the Kobo is majorly lacking in book and personalization options.

Barnes and Noble have been promising an app for over a year and have not delivered. I’m disappointed guys. Really disappointed.
