Amazon has pre-empted the expected rush of new Android and Windows tablets this year by announcing plans for Kindle applications tailored to such devices.
The new applications, which don’t have an official launch date yet, will join those already available for PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android phones.
It’s all part of Amazon’s ‘Buy Once, Read Everywhere’ philosophy to ebooks, which ensures that you can get your Kindle ebooks on near enough any device. Not only can you read your books on any device, your progress is synced across devices as well.
With CES 2011 about to start, and dozens upon dozens of new tablets expected to be announced, the timing of this announcement couldn’t be more apt. You can read our CES 2011 report page for all latest news from the show, and be sure to check back daily for the latest updates.
