    You don't have to wait for Kindle to read ebooks--- because the Touchpad has a full web browser *with Flash capability*, you can already use ebooks online such as Google ebooks: Google eBookstore

    Apps are nice, but a lot of people don't seem to realize is that with its full web browser including FLASH capability, you can use a zillion web apps without installing any Touchpad apps or having to wait for, say, the Kindle App to be up-to-par.

    Can you get books bought from or through Amazon Kindle through the browser? That I believe is what the Kindle App is for, Kindle customers.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Curiously, Derek wrote an article on the front page where his source claims:

    First up, those new apps: HP expects to release during the week of July 18th (that’s next week, if you weren’t sure) both the HP MovieStore and an HP music store of some variety. Due later in the month will be Amazon Kindle and Amazon MP3.
    Which seems to directly contradict DeWitt's claim from yesterday's interview with Thisismynext:

    TIMN: Will that be available by the 17th?

    Jon: No.

    Stephen: Some elements will be available, improvements to our movie store, the Kindle app… but the OTA is planned for the end of the month.

    The reviewers reported the Kindle app had bugs. I'm assuming Amazon developed it and they are fixing the bugs. They could have told DeWitt they would have it by the 17th and then changed the date. We simply don't have enough information to know.
