The Kindle App will allow users to turn book pages with with their fingers imitating the feel of reading a physical book. Apple iPad will have its own iBook app but Amazon is still pushing ahead with its Kindle app as the iPad arrival will generally benefit the entire e-book market.

Barnes & Noble is also in the competitive fray and it is planning to introduce its e-book reading App once the tablet goes public just like Amazon. [via: Nytimes]
