Read.amazon.com - working again on os 2.0
I tried the other day and it said I was on an unsupported browser today it seems to work.
This is running 126.96.36.1998
So we have kindle on PlayBook again without android side loading

I also noticed this and posted in a different thread. Also try the Amazon Cloud Player, which works as well. I'm in shock, wondering if I've been drugged...
I wouldn't go and remove the Android Reader though. It has much better features than the Cloud Reader, like the dictionary, highlighter, etc.

Here's to hoping an app comes soon. Possibly Netflix would get on board once seeing the Amazon cloud player working. A man can hope right?

To the OP, your book is in the library of the cloud reader. Click it. It's there! Make sure you initially start it up in the portrait mode and keep it that way.

Thank you for posting about the portrait thing I was about to give up on it thinking it didn't work in UK but it does whoop. Do I have to be connected to the Internet via wifi or bridge open the link to cloud reader then download one of my books then I can disconnect and carry on reading? Is there a way to read when I have no way of connecting? I'm thinking say on a plane where there is no Internet can a book be stored on playbook like books Are stored on my kindle ereader. Hope this doesn't seem daft I'm not good with tech!

But to answer the question, the Cloud Reader does indeed work when the PB is in airplane mode and after you open the browser. As long as the book is dnloaded to the PB, it will work just fine. The same is true for the sideloaded Kindle Reader. Give it a try at home by turning on airplane mode and opening read.amazon.com in the browser.
