Amazon Kindle App Brings Embedded Video and Audio to iPhone/iPad

The latest Amazon [AMZN] Kindle app for the iPhone and iPad brings embedded video and audio to certain books. The first books that take advantage of using embedded media includes Together We Cannot Fail by Terry Golway amongst a handful of others.

“We are excited to add this functionality to Kindle for iPad and Kindle for iPhone and iPod touch,” said Dorothy Nicholls, director, Amazon Kindle. “Readers will already find some Kindle Editions with audio/video clips in the Kindle Store today–from Rose’s Heavenly Cakes with video tips on preparing the perfect cake to Bird Songs with audio clips that relate the songs and calls to the birds’ appearances. This is just the beginning–we look forward to seeing what authors and publishers create for Kindle customers using the new functionality of the Kindle apps.”

Right now there are only a handful of books that appears to be only available in the US. To make use of the Kindle Editions books you need to download the latest Kindle app on your Apple [AAPL] device such as the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
