The Amazon Kindle is now available for iPhone. No real advance notice in this one other than the slides that Amazon used during the Kindle 2 press conference indicating that the ebook reader would be available on other mobile devices. I set it up on my iPhone in under 30 seconds. Downloaded a book from my library (you cannot purchase books via iPhone) in another 30. Was reading away in under 1.5 minutes. So far as I can tell you are unable to download any subscription items (magazines, newspapers, blogs). There’s also no “pinch zoom” – if you need to re-size fonts you’ll have to select from one of several pre-set layouts. I find it a bit freakish to have to put in my whole Amazon.com account just to read books. Amazon needs a separate Kindle account user name and password. Other than that – the app is free. If you own an iPhone but held off on buying a Kindle due to the hardware price – this is a good way to experience eBook reading without the expense of buying a Kindle.
