Kindle for PC App Beta Release Now Available Kindle for PC Released, Kindle for Mac Listed as 'Coming Soon'

Having given you an initial heads up concerning Amazon s Kindle for PC
application last month we can now confirm that the beta candidate of
Kindle for PC is now available for those looking to access Amazon s
ebook format on your PCs, though if you own a Mac you ll still find
yourself out in the cold as whilst the PC iteration has just gained its
release the Mac version is still unavailable at this juncture with its
release merely listed as �coming soon .
For those unfamiliar with what Amazon s Kindle for PC application has to
offer, though we s argue its title is fairly self explanatory, the new
application, which is free to download, basically allows you access
Amazon s wealth of Kindle ebooks (presently standing at over 360,000 in
number) via your PC without having to splash out for Amazon s Kindle
ebook reader " though, of course, downloading titles will require
monetary outlay.
Its great news it you happen to want to access Amazon s wealth of ebooks
but, alas, its not such good new if you re looking to access Kindle
based newspapers and/or magazines as, for the time being at least, these
cannot be used with the PC application. We would, however, expect these
additional reading materials to become accessible to users of the Kindle
for PC in the near to mid-term future.
