United Nations release Kindle, iPhone ebooks

From the announcement:

United Nations Publications announced today the release of the UN e-book applications for iPhone and e-books for Amazon’s Kindle which give users easy access to offline reading and reference on global issues. The first UN publications available as iPhone applications, or ‘apps’, are UN flagship titles such as The Charter of the United Nations, The United Nations Today, and Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Available for a nominal fee at the App Store, UN e-book apps allow users to take advantage of the advanced capabilities of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch user interface.

    Features of the UN e-book apps include:

  • Simple and clean user interface,
  • Full-text search across the text,
  • Intuitive navigation to different parts of the book,
  • Linking to other UN titles.

There's only one title in the Kindle Store, and a bunch in iTunes. I'm not certain which are the official apps, but my guess is that the official apps list KiwiTech as the developer.

BTW, you can also get the ebooks on the UN website. Some are rather expensive, though.

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."
