With the ebook reader market getting bigger and bigger, Amazon is trying to keep relevant. You could access Kindle books on your Kindle and on the iPhone app — now there is the Kindle reader for Windows so you can read on your laptop. Sure a computer screen is usually hardly optimal for long reading periods, but having the option to read your books on multiple machines may be of interest to some. Maybe this kind of thing will help out the new tablet PCs that are coming out. With Windows 7, the Kindle reader can zoom in and out using the pinch gesture. Turning pages can be done using a finger swipe.
Right now you can head over to the Kindle for PC site and sign up for a notification when the software is available. It’s a free download that will be available next month and it will be compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP.
