Buy This Now On Amazon

Amazon today launches its "Kindle for Blackberry" application, allowing BB users to have access to the 420,000+ e-books available from the e-tail giant's Kindle Store. It is the latest expansion of Amazon's digital book service to device beyond its own first-party reading device.

"Since the launch of our popular Kindle for iPhone app last year, customers have been asking us to bring a similar experience to the BlackBerry, and we are thrilled to make it available today," said Amazon VP Ian Freed, the man in charge of the Kindle division.

Existing Kindle customers can download all their current purchases to their Blackberry if they so desire, and Amazon even keeps track of where you leave off on each book. So if you finish chapter 1 on your Kindle DX, you can immediately start on chapter 2 on your Blackberry later on.

The Blackberry app contains the full Kindle storefront, and just like the Kindle devices, books can be purchased over a mobile network in a matter of minutes.

The application is available now at amazon.com/kindlebb.
