Amazon Kindle App Coming to BlackBerry 10 This Month

Kindle

BlackBerry said at launch that Amazon would be bringing their Kindle platform to BlackBerry 10 and it looks like the time is almost upon us. BlackBerry has confirmed that Kindle will launch in BlackBerry World this month. That is actually momentous since even the original Kindle app for BlackBerry Java devices never made it onto BlackBerry World. Either way my guess is the Kindle app will be an Android port since it works like a charm when you sideload it. Keep an eye out for Kindle in BlackBerry World and let us know if you spot it!

  1. Yes!
    For me, this is more important than Skype, Instagram, Whatsapp, et al…

  2. Remember when PlayBook was announced and they said Kindle was coming for it during the announcement? Then we never heard another whisper…

    Hopefully, it’s not a port. The high profile apps becoming available as ports are hurting the platform image – it shows that third parties are not really willing to commit.

    Alternatively – ports followed by native versions would be *really* good press, so there’s possible future upside.

  3. So long as we can still sideload books into the app I will be happy. It can be done with the current android version so fingers crossed.

  4. Yeah, the Built for Blackberry 10 apps are the best looking and easiest to navigate (once you get used to the gestures) apps available on any device. Android apps are ok, but they are relatively clunky, oftentimes have quirks/bugs and lack the ease of the use of BB10 apps.

  5. I think Amazon is afraid of losing big chunk of Blackberry customers to Kobo or other competitors :) With Playbook, that was not the case.

  6. I use both Kindle and Kobo (whomever is cheaper), surprised Kobo is not on BB10 given they already have a Playbook app that they could just port?

    Looking forward to Kindle… bring it!
