Kindle Development Kit in Beta

For a while now, I have been the proud owner of an Amazon Kindle. My only complaint has been what a closed platform it is. Reading books is awesome, but there’s so much potential in this little device…

Just today I learned that the Amazon is accepting applications for KDK Developers. What’s that? We can write custom applications for the Kindle? Heck yes! Where’s my Frotz port?

Intial reactions on Kindle Active Content and the KDK itself seem to be very positive. It uses Java. Everyone knows Java. I’ve applied to the beta and hope to be prototyping Kindle games soon!
