Amazon routes Kindle books to rival iPad

Amazon.com on Friday released an application that lets people read digitized Kindle books on rival iPad tablet computers poised to debut in the United States.
Apple's latest creation will be available yesterday morning at the California company's shops and at Best Buy electronics chain stores.
The Amazon.com application will let iPad users buy any of more than 450,000 digital books from the online Kindle Store.
Amazon "Whispersync" technology lets people read across an array of devices, picking up at pages where they left off whether they are switching to Kindle, iPod Touch, iPads or other gadgets.
