    OK.. my bad.. I was able to download it again from Amazon. For some reason it didn't transfer from my 9800. But still no Pandora!

    Yup. Go to amazon.com on your BB, click on the front and center link that says "Get Amazon Apps for BlackBerry," and click the Kindle App icon/link.

    It is indeed the reader app, and you can download books into it and read them much as you would on a Kindle device. I'm not sure what you downloaded, but if it only allows you to order books for a Kindle device, it wasn't the actual Kindle for BlackBerry app.

    Interesting. When you go to the Kindle for BB page on your PC, Amazon doesn't mention the app as being available for the 9810 either, but I suspect it's because it's close enough to the 9800 that there's no problem downloading it to the 9810.

    I can confirm the Kindle reader works on the 9810.

    The Kindle app runs on my 9810 but doesn't open any books, whether free or pay. Jusr gives me the error telling me to delete and redownload the books. I've done that and tried deleting and reinstalling the app like 10 times already.

    Confirmed by Amazon tech support--the Kindle reader app is not supported yet on the 9810. It may work on your device, but they don't warrant that it will, and won't help you if it doesn't. It installs on mine (AT&T 7.0.0.261) and my books all show up, but when I click on any book, "Downloading to Home" comes up and stays there, without ever writing any data to the local store.

    It may be the luck of the draw if you are running it sucessfully, but anyone else trying is on their own according to Amazon until they release an update.

    Or perhaps your problem is just the (bad) luck of the draw for you -- mine works flawlessly when downloading a book. Love it on the 9810 with the higher res!

    I am looking for a good app to read ebooks that I already own, and/or pdf's on my blackberry torch 9810. Is this a via-able option, or with this are we only able to read those books that we have purchased from Amazon. If so, it is still a good app, but I am looking for something that will let me load ebooks up onto the phone and read them..

    The kindle app will handle ebooks downloaded from Amazon, of course, but will also work with Project Gutenberg ebooks downloaded from the PG web site in kindle format and saved to the /kindle/ebooks directory on your storage card or internal storage. So far it has worked well. I got the invalid book message for a couple of books, but removed them and re-downloaded them from the archive.
