Amazon Makes Major Push into Schools with Whispercast

| No Comments


A really interesting Kindle development, as reported in Publishers Weekly:

Looking to broaden the reach of Kindle devices, Amazon has targeted educational and business institutions with the launch of Whispercast for Kindle, a new technology that allows organizations to distribute and centrally manage the deployment of content to multiple Kindle devices.

Whispercast for Kindle is designed to encourage the bulk distribution of Kindles, Kindle Fires and Kindle Reading apps to institutional groups, like high schools and employees of a business, by allowing groups to distribute content to the devices through a localized network. A spokesperson for Amazon said the technology will be available for "all books in the Kindle store" and that payment for titles will be made through the organization managing the Whispercast account.
