Amazon Kindle for Windows Phone 7 Announced

Amazon has announced that Kindle for Windows Phone 7 will be launching soon. Not much, if anything at all, is different to other versions on other platforms. Release dates have not been provided yet other than the announcement says it will arrive sometime this year.

Just like other devices that run Kindle, you’ll be able to buy books from a library of over 750,000 eBooks as well as use the Whispersync technology to keep all Kindle devices you own up todate with where you are currently reading.

The full feature set includes the following…

* Access to over 725,000 books in the U.S. Kindle Store – the largest selection of the most popular books that people want to read – including New Releases and 108 of this week’s 111 New York Times Bestsellers.
* With Kindle Worry-Free Archive, books purchased from the Kindle Store are automatically backed up online in a customer’s Kindle library on Amazon, where they can be re-downloaded wirelessly for free, anytime.
* Buy Once, Read Everywhere with the Kindle apps and devices. Amazon’s Whispersync technology syncs your place across devices, so you can pick up where you left off.
* Integrated shopping experience that allows customers to shop without leaving the app.
* The opportunity to send an email to a friend with a link to the book you’re reading or to any book in your library without leaving the app.
* Customized reading, choosing from five different font sizes and three background colors.
* The ability to read in portrait or landscape mode, and to turn pages by tapping on either side of the screen or flicking.
* The option to try the beginning of a book for free before buying and to receive personalized recommendations on the home screen of your app.
