NEW DELHI: Korean electronics giant Samsung today announced a global arrangement with global retail major Amazon to launch Kindle for Samsung app, a custom-built eBook service.
The app will debut in this month starting with Samsung's flagship Galaxy S5 and other smartphones and tablets with above Android 4.0 worldwide.
"As part of the service, Amazon and Samsung will launch Samsung Book Deals, available to all customers using Kindle for Samsung," Samsung said in a statement.
The custom-built eBook service will offer best-selling books, newspapers and magazines on mobile devices including over 500,000 exclusive titles.
Samsung and Amazon will also launch Samsung Book Deals, a service providing 12 free eBooks a year to all Kindle for Samsung Galaxy smartphone and tablet users.
Kindle for Samsung is immediately available in over 90 countries from Samsung apps.
Other features include Whispersync that saves and synchronises the last page read across devices, so that a reader can always pick up wherever they left off.
Besides, the Time to Read feature shows how much time it will take to finish a chapter or a book based on personalised reading speed.
Worry-Free Archive feature automatically backs up the user's Kindle books to the cloud, so that they never need to worry about losing their books, Samsung said.
