After learning that the app for Amazon's Kindle was released for the iPod Phone/touch today, I downloaded the free app to my iPod touch. Since I already has a regular Amazon account, I entered my username and password to the app on my iPod touch.
I leapt up, and went to my desktop computer, launched Amazon and went to the Kindle page. I did a search for genealogy and came up with a book on genealogy for $7.99. I purchased it and it was immediately and wirelessly sent to my iPod touch.
I waited for the iPod touch to locate my wireless network in my house and launched the app for the Amazon Kindle and as this book is only 54KB in size, it quickly downloaded to my iPod touch.
This is what the Home screen looks like on the iPod touch. I tap on the book and it opens, ready to be read. Wow, was that easy.
