E-reader targets smartphone apps

The line between e-reader and smartphone has been blurred after Amazon revealed the Kindle will soon support third-party apps.

Apps have proven immensely popular on smartphones like the Nexus One and the iPhone, which boasts more than 100,000 on the App Store. Now, Amazon has announced that its e-reader will follow suit by offering apps in the Kindle Store later this year.

From next month, developers will be able to get a limited beta of the new Kindle Development Kit. This includes coding samples, tools, help documents and a Kindle Simulator that recreates the layout of the e-reader.
