Amazon “Kindle for PC” is a free application that let’s readers enjoy reading books purchased from Kindle Store right on their Windows PC. Beta of Kindle for PC will be available in November. Amazon plans similar Kindle apps for Macs and BlackBerry devices in next few months. “Kindle for PC takes advantage of key Windows 7 features such as Windows Touch for zooming in and out with a pinch of the fingers and turning pages with the swipe of a finger. It also includes integration with the Windows Taskbar through a Jump List.” Kindle for PC’ll also run on PCs running Windows XP and Vista as well. Kindle for PC app also uses Amazon’s Whispersync technology, that allows to sync bookmarks and last read page across PCs (and other devices such as Kindle and Kindle DX). Microsoft showed off Kindle for PC for the first time at New York City Launch Party for Windows 7.
