Kindle for the Blackberry

Saw the announcement by accident while doing some browsing on Amazon. Thought I’d try it out just to see. Download and install easy enough, connected to Amazon via the app and downloaded a free book – Sherlock Holmes. Paging works by hitting the space bar or moving the track bar, and the text is very readable. The downside? You can read about 2 sentences on the display, so reading the book will require a lot of paging. In a pinch it would work, and probably work better if it was article length rather than book length, but I can’t see me paying for books to read on this particular phone.
