Ok, not specifically iPad news, but it is significant to the e-reader space. Amazon has released a beta version of its Kindle application for the mac. This new tool will allow those folks buying books for their Kindle to view them on their mac desktop.
“Read Kindle Books on Your Mac
- Get the best reading experience available on your Mac. No Kindle required
- Access your Kindle books even if you don’t have your Kindle with you
- Automatically synchronizes your last page read and annotations between devices with Whispersync
- Create bookmarks and view the annotations you created on your Kindle”
Amazon has already released a Kindle book reader for the iPhone.
