Amazon Kindle (Free – in app purchase) – released  on 1/5/2010
Kindle is now on Windows Phone 7. Reading on a smartphone is probably at his best here, especially if you have a gorgeous screen like the Samsung LG or a very big screen like the HTC HD7.
Kindle has an in-app marketplace: to purchase books (and access previews or excerpts) the app uses the Amazon web site inside an app window. Don’t worry if it sounds clumsy, though: most of the time you will spend on this app will be reading, and reading on Kindle is good. Yeah the pages are short and it’s not the same as a book or as a bigger device, but the phone is the most portable device you have in your pocket and using Kindle will give you an opportunity to read more.
