Having been an avid e-book reader since the days of the first Palm devices, I’ve anxiously anticipated the introduction of an e-book application since Windows Phone was released. There was a little disappointment this morning when Amazon announced that it will release Kindle apps for Android and Windows tablets, but didn’t mention a Kindle app for Windows Phone. I was surprised to find, tonight, with no apparent formal announcement, the app in the Zune Marketplace.
I quickly “purchased” the free app from my computer’s Zune Marketplace and was informed that it would be installed soon. Thirty
Fifteen minutes later it’s still not on my Samsung Focus. The app is also noticeably absent from the Marketplace search on my phone. This is one quiet introduction. More screen shots from the Zune Marketplace below.
