Amazon, as far as we can tell, is the first company out of the gate to confirm it will be bringing its Kindle app to the BlackBerry PlayBook, announced just hours ago at RIM's DEVCON conference in San Francisco.

"Amazon.com today announced that it will launch a Kindle app for the new BlackBerry PlayBook tablet computer", the company said in a statement.

Like all Kindle apps, the Kindle app for the new BlackBerry PlayBook will let customers Buy Once, Read Everywhere; on Kindle, Kindle 3G, Kindle DX, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, PC, BlackBerry, Android-based devices, and in the coming months, the new BlackBerry PlayBook.

"We're very excited to add the new BlackBerry PlayBook to that list. As with our other Kindle apps, the BlackBerry PlayBook app will be free and will incorporate our WhisperSync technology so you can seamlessly switch between devices. Our vision is 'Buy Once, Read Everywhere'", said Dorothy Nicholls, Director, Amazon Kindle.

The new app will be available for the launch of the new tablet from RIM.
