The Kindle (and its successor the Kindle 2) remain a US-only prospect, but from what we can see, no such restriction applies to the new Kindle for iPhones app, which promises access to Kindle ebooks you've purchased even if you don't own a Kindle. Quite possibly good news for Aussie buyers. Every book, magazine, and newspaper you can buy for the Kindle can now be read through the iPhone app, and many of the same features are included. You can bookmark any page, change text sizes on the fly, and note and highlight passages. You buy your books through Amazon's web-based Kindle Store, either on a desktop/laptop system or through your iPhone Safari browser, and choose to send the purchases (or one-chapter samples) to your iPhone/touch or Kindle. I don't have an iPhone to fully test Amazon's claims, though it did let me right through all the buying screens for individual titles; if you've got it working, share your experiences in the comments Kindle for iPhone is a free download, requires an iPhone or iPod touch running at least the 2.0 software.
