Starting today, a version of Amazon's e-reader Kindle will be available as a free application for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch. Users will be able to download books or periodicals from a library of about 240,000 materials to the devices, usually for about $10. Users who own Amazon's hand-held e-reader device, Kindle, and one of the Apple devices will be able to sync their reading material across their various devices via an Amazon service called Whispersync, at no extra charge.
