New Kindle Portal Site Launched

A friend sent me a link the other day for a new Kindle portal site, and it’s well worth a look.

Have you ever tried the web browser on the Kindle? It works, but you have to admit that it’s kinda awkward. Portal websites help repair the awkwardness by gathering several basic functions into one location so they’re easy to find.

Most will offer a collection of links, but EReadPlus also offers a number of useful web apps, each with a custom interface that works well on the Kindle. For example, there’s an option for Google Translate and Google Maps, as well as several other apps including a calculator, thesaurus, calendar, and more.

The site works rather well, but there is one detail that puzzles me.  I don’t understand why everyone is so focused on the Kindle. It’s no longer the only eBook Reader with a web browser. The Nook Touch and Kobo Touch each have a browser built in and they can use this site as well. Don’t you think it’s time that these other eReaders were also supported?
