You can’t underestimate the love lavished on Amazon’s Kindle among UK first adopters – the giant retailer’s sold a fair few of its eBook reading devices to Mac user’s here in the UK – and now it seems the company plans to release a Kindle reader for the Mac.

The news follows Microsoft’s declaration during its Windows 7 launch that Amazon is developing a reader for that platform.

Now Fast Company informs Amazon is developing the same for the Mac, citing a company spokesperson who said, “Yes, we are working on a Kindle app for Mac.”

This is interesting news as Apple allegedly engages in development of its own eBook-reading solution (in part) with its rumoured tablet product, as activity in the eBook space increases in intensity.
