Brandon Watson is at PDC and he’s shown off the Kindle and Turbo Tax apps running on a Focus. Here are images from the event from Long Zheng. And by the way, all attendees are getting free phones.
Oh apaprently there’s a Kindle press release already so we can learn more about the app:
“Kindle for Windows Phone 7 will be released later this year, and includes the features customers love about all of the Kindle apps, plus new features built into a Kindle app for the first time, such as personalized book recommendations on your Kindle app home screen and the ability to send a book suggestion to a friend from any book in your library without leaving the app.”
With Kindle for Windows Phone 7, readers will take advantage of the following features:
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.
