Amazon's Whispersync For Kindle Keeps Tablets And E-Readers In Sync
In addition to managing across Kindle devices, the service will also include support for "bring your own device" programs for students and employees wanting to add their own devices to a Whispercast account. Moreover, support for the distribution of applications from the Amazon Appstore for Android will be rolled in. Here's a bit more from Amazon:
"Whispercast provides a single access point to easily purchase and distribute Kindle books and documents for educational, marketing and employee incentive programs across Kindle devices and free Kindle reading applications for iPad, iPhone, Android phones and tablets, PCs and Macs. In the coming months, Whispercast will support distribution of Kindle Fire applications. Whispercast works with Kindle e-readers and Kindle Fire tablets, including the recently announced $69 Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Paperwhite 3G, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HD 8.9" and Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G LTE. Whispercast makes it easy for business owners to manage and deploy fleets of Kindle e-readers and tablets as a way to support employee productivity or customer marketing initiatives. Additionally, Whispercast makes it easy to centrally distribute PDFs and other business documents such as a conference agenda or training materials to employees or customers. With "bring your own device" support businesses will be able to distribute documents and Kindle books to personally-owned Kindles and other devices with access to free Kindle reading applications."
If we had to guess, this is probably just scratching the surface when it comes to Amazon's cloud services related to the Kindle ecosystem.
