Kindle metamorphosis

Amazon is responding aggressively to the tablet challenge

Up to now, you could only read online newspapers via your tablet, your smart phone, or your computer

That is about to change, according to a press release.

Amazon just released the new Send to Kindle Button for websites. Any website owner can add the new button so their visitors can send content to Kindle devices and free Kindle reading apps for iPhone, iPad, Android phones and Android tablets. Some sites have already added the button including The Washington Post, TIME, and Boing Boing.

Adding the Send to Kindle Button opens a website to millions of Kindle customers who can now enjoy the content on Kindle. The Send to Kindle Button is available for website owners to download for free.

Readers often encounter news articles, blog posts and other content on the web that they want to read but don’t have time to do so immediately. The Send to Kindle Button lets people easily send that content to their Kindle so they can it read later. Just send once and read everywhere on any Kindle device or free reading app. No more hunting around for that website or blog that caught your eye – just open your Kindle and all the content you sent is right there. The Send to Kindle Button is also great for readers who want to collect content from the web to use in work projects, school assignments, or hobbies.

So if you thought your Kindle was a dedicated book-reading device, you need to think again...
