From AppleInsider:

'We are excited to make Kindle books available on a range of mobile phones,' Amazon spokesman Drew Herdener tells the New York Times. 'We are working on that now.'

I'm not sure how opening the format helps Amazon. Seems they're trying to follow iTunes' model but missing a step: huge customer momentum bred from an initial period of lock-in. If Kindle hits iPod touch and friends now and Apple makes a slightly larger touch, well, goodbye slight initial Amazon advantage.

The slow move to interoperability and open formats is the right one, but it's waaaaaaay too soon for Kindle to do it.
