Since little is known right now about KDK and the way it will integrate with Kindle software I can only speculate about which Kindle apps will be available. And this is precisely what I’m going to do.
Kindle Sudoku is likely to the among the first application to appear in fact I believe that there will be multiple versions of it by several companies. Sudoku is a very popular game, it doesn’t require fast screen refresh, colors and any computing power or memory. On top of that it’s not encumbered by trademarks or copyrights so everyone is free to implement it in any way they like. Kindle keyboard and 5-way controller are good enough for playing Sudoku (I have to admit that touchscreen with a stylus would have been the most perfect).
I’ve been blogging about Kindle for a while over at blogkindle.com. However with a recent explosion in the number of eBook reader devices the blog has gravitated from solely covering news related to Kindle to comparative reviews of eBook reader that are competing with Kindle. Amazon’s announcement of Kindle SDK gives me a chance to recapture the focus on my favorite device.
Since there is quite a number of posts published over at the old blog on a regular basis, I’ve decided to start a new blog here. I’ll post reviews of new and upcoming applications for Amazon Kindle. I’m also interested in developing Kindle applications myself so once I get on board the KDK program I’ll write about my KDK development experience here too.
