    According to a May 19, 2011 press release (Amazon Media Room:News Release) the Kindle for PlayBook app is coming soon:

    All Kindle Books let you "Buy Once, Read Everywhere" - on all generation Kindles, as well as on the largest number of devices and platforms, including iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, PC, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Android-based devices, and soon HP TouchPads and BlackBerry PlayBooks.
    Better late than never.

    except in nj, a cookie cutter home can be built in 4 days and at cost unless the builder kara builds. then its 4 days then another 8 after it collapses two hours later.

    That is a good guess, would be hard to sell something like the playbook that does not support your flagship product.

    I do hope it comes soon, the other day I finally put down my PB and picked up my Kindle, the lighting was low in the room and I thought wow, soon (I hope) I will be able to read my books when it is dark. I gotta say I do love my Kindle.

    That just shows that people still dont understand the power of the playbook, however I feel the more of us CB addicts show people the how good of a product it is and keep emailing all these companies on daily asking when , when and when will their product get released on the PB. Then we will see apps devlop a little quicker. Dont forget people the PB is not a month old in the consumer market. A new direction for RIM so dont worry the PB will become a serious contender in the market. Now we have to push RIM to develop a true video conferencing app that will allow PB users to VC across different platfroms.

    The Kindle site says that Kindle For Blackberry (phones) is not available outside the US. So here I am in the home town of RIM and can't get the Kindle app. I hope that changes with the Playbook version.

    Funny... Cause I have it on my phone, and I'm in Oakville. Just use your phone to go to their browser and download it. You won't be able to buy books using the app, but you can buy it on the web account and sync it.

    But you're not in the hometown of Amazon which owns Kindle.
