Kindle App for BlackBerry

With a host of tablets on the horizon seen gunning for the iPad, and a new breed of smartphones well-endowed with large, high resolution displays making their way into the hands of the masses, continuing that page-turner from whatever device you happen to have with you is a real possibility. Whether you already have an eReader device and want to always have your book library with you to kill a few minutes while on-the-go, or would rather forgo purchasing an eReader altogether – there’s an app for that, and chances are that it’s available for download to your smartphone, desktop computer, and tablet.

Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Borders have each released an eBook reader (or tablet) device, but have also wisely elected to bring their eBook stores to smartphone platforms including Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, and RIM’s BlackBerry operating systems by way of an app. Because these apps are free downloads, you can try each and every one of them and decide which app provides the best reading and shopping experience for you — but here’s a few highlights:
