Amazon has just announced the availability of a new edition of the Kindle application, this time for Microsoft’s latest mobile operating system, Windows Phone 7. The application will be launched by the end of this year, the company said.
Free software that, like versions for desktop or others smartphones, allows access and synchronization of «pending» readings on the various Kindle platforms, was demonstrated during Microsoft’s annual developer conference.
In addition to the usual features on this type of platform, such as access to all the user’s works and the online store with more than 725 thousand digital books (in the case of the USA), the edition for Windows Phone 7 introduces novelties such as «personalized book recommendations «and the possibility of sending book suggestions from the user’s library to a friend, without abandoning the application, Amazon anticipated.
The company has been diversifying the number of platforms and ways to ensure access to its ebooks, in a strategy that will also include the possibility for users to lend works to each other, as recently announced.
