No doubt about it, Amazon is conquering the world of eBooks!

Kindle for iPhone application was just released to iTunes marketplace and is available for download! What it does is it brings most of the Amazon Kindle functionality to iPhone or iPod Touch.

There is not anything clearly said about the DRM protection of these eBooks neither the file format used but my guess is that they still protected and the same restrictions that Amazon has for Kindles will apply to iPhones. And I do not have any problem with that. Amazon lets you add up to 5 Kindles into your account, that means that all members of your family can read your purchased books at anytime. In another hand, Amazon acts like your personal library. If you buy a new Kindle replacing your old one as soon as you connect it to your account all your books become available to you. You won’t have old problem any more where your downloaded eBooks get lost if your device brakes. That never happens.

    I wonder if we’ll get versions for other operating systems, too (specifically Windows Mobile).

    It seems like an easy way to get people hooked on Kindle books. Plus, if users find reading more difficult than they’d like, it might provide an incentive to upgrade to a real Kindle.

    baa. less restrictive drm is still drm. The kindle 2 has the ability to read the text but some publishers are going to turn that feature off for you. I’d rather buy from a non-drm fair use source like Baen books webscription so I can do as I please. rtf preferably but pdf if I have to. My family has paperbacks 40-50 years old. Who knows where the kindle is going to be by then? But if I’m still alive in 50 years from now I’ll still have my ebooks at ninety-three and the e-reciepts to say they’re mine.
