I went to https://read.amazon.com to read books I have bought through amazon. Unfortunately, I received the message that my browser was not supported. Do I need to download another web browser - if so, which ones are compatible with blackberry? Thanks.

The blackberry app will not download onto the playbook.
03/19/2013 20:36:22

Sorry, but this does not work.  I had tried it but pasting/writing 'amazon.com/kindlebb' in the playbook browser simply returns me to the same page.  I suspect this only works for blackberry phones and playbook users are still left out in the cold.
