Amazon Kindle App Coming to BlackBerry 10 This Month

BlackBerry announced today that an official Amazon Kindle e-reader app will be available for BlackBerry 10 before the end of March.

UPDATE: I just heard back from BlackBerry, and the upcoming Amazon Kindle app for BlackBerry 10 will not be a native BlackBerry app. It will be a ported version of the Android app.

I just got word from BlackBerry PR that an official Amazon Kindle e-book app will be available for BlackBerry 10 before the end of this month. It's unclear whether or not the app will be a native BlackBerry app or a ported Android version, but I've reached out for more information. Kindle is one of the apps that I currently miss the most on my Z10. I tried downloading a repackaged Android Kindle app, but the software didn't run well on my device so I quickly ditched it.

BlackBerry Z10 with Amazon Kindle app

There are a number of e-book apps available for BlackBerry 10, but some of them cost money and all of them require you to download compatible book files before you can read them. The official Kindle app lets you quickly and easily access your Amazon e-book library, and it's free.
