Ars got their hands on Kindle for Android

I'm dying of jealousy here. Ars Technica is covering Google I/O, and they got the chance to try Kindle for Android. Here is an excerpt:

Screen readability is good and offers a solid reading experience. Users can select from several different font sizes and background colors. Options include a sepia mode and a white-on-black mode for night reading. The application user interface has a brightness adjustment slider, but it wasn't yet functional in the prototype that I tested.

I'm not really all that interested in it, actually. Based on how the Kindle app performs on other platforms, I would guess that the Android version will be good but not spectacular. The Kindle app on the iPhone is a distant second to Stanza, and I think K4A will also come up second to Aldiko.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. See, I have such a huge kindle library I can’t wait for this. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but being able to duck into a book I’m reading when I’m away from the Kindle is all I ask for.
