Enjoy Two-Column Kindle Reading on BlackBerry Passport

We figured that high resolution square display had to be useful for something, right? While the BlackBerry Passport is being geared much more toward the business, corporate and enterprise kind of crowd, that doesn’t mean those folks can’t enjoy a little e-book action now and then too. Having Kindle on a BlackBerry is nothing new, but it is a little different on the Passport.

What makes the Kindle reading experience on a Passport different, in case you haven’t figured out from the title of this post, is that you can arrange the text in two columns, mimicking what it would feel like to read an open paperback book. The two pages can then span across the entirety of the 4.5-inch 1440×1440 pixel display. I imagine the experience still isn’t as good as when you’re reading on a larger tablet, where the two-column mode was first introduced, but it’s something.

Aside from that, the Kindle app for BlackBerry Passport operates as you’d expect. You can sift through your library, buy and download books on the fly, resize the text, try before you buy, bookmark where you left off, sync your last read page across devices and so on. You can find the Kindle app in the Amazon Appstore.
