Amazon launches Kindle Cloud Reader. Eliminates need for Kindle on iPad

Amazon has kicked off the battle against Apple’s in app purchase restrictions with the amazingly good HTML5 Kindle cloud reader which is basically the kindle program for your tablet with offline mode availability as well.

Here is a screen shot of my Kindle Cloud reader on my chrome tablet.

It’s clean, fast and responsive and features the return of the Kindle store button.

Like all Kindle apps, the Cloud Reader synchronizes everything in your library. It looks sweet on the iPad and works nicely on the PC.

Will users go with a browser based version over an app?  That transition may take years to play out, but HTML5 will wind up winning the day especially amongst those of us who eschew Apple’s recent anti-competitive actions.
