An Amazon Kindle app will be coming to the Android platform this summer, according to the online bookseller. Android users will be able to browser and read more than 540,000 books and download a digital copy, with new releases starting at $10. Using Amazon's so-called Whispersync feature, Android users will find their purchases synchronized with other Kindle-enabled devices, including the Kindle itself, Apple iPhone OS devices, BlackBerry phones, PCs and Macs. The Kindle app will even remember where you left off and continue from that page, even if you pick up again on a different device. Amazon is offering a sneak peak at the service online, but the company did not offer more specific details about availability.

With that large screen it has. It would be sort of a happy medium. Don't want to lug around something has large as the iPad but don't want to have to squint on the G1's small a$$ screen? Evo is the answer.
