Amazon Kindle for iPad app on the way

Software ready for Apple tablet launch

Amazon has announced that it will release Kindle software for Apple's iPad, a move one analyst said was in line with the e-tailer's earlier releases of viewing software for the PC, Mac, iPhone and Blackberry.

A page on Amazon's site specifically mentions the iPad as one of the tablet platforms that the company's Kindle software will support. Although Amazon did not specify a ship date for the iPad edition, the New York Times reported that it would not be available April 3, when Apple delivers pre-ordered iPads to customers in the US and starts selling them in its own stores. The iPad is not expected to be available in the UK until the end of April.

According to Amazon, the iPad version of Kindle will have the same functionality as the year-old iPhone software.
