The Amazon Kindle e-Reading app has been one of the most asked for apps for the Blackberry Playbook since it first came out. Amazon has never developed an official app for the platform, but is expected to release its seminal reading app and bookstore this March on BB10.
Rumors are swirling that Amazon is actively developing a native version of its app to be released sometime in March. This will give customers the ability to both buy and read books on their Z10 phone. Currently, the only way to get Kindle working is to sideload in the converted Android file and the main downside is that you always need to maintain a WIFI connection.
This potential app might be good news for everyone in the Blackberry sphere who is really looking for a mainstream reading app to hit their platform. Currently no big name company has a dedicated reading app for BB10.
