"Kindle for Windows Phone 7 extends our vision of ‘Buy Once, Read Everywhere.’ The app is optimised for the unique user interface of Windows Phone 7, and will include our Whispersync technology, so you always have your library with you and never lose your place in a book as you switch between devices."
