How non-US Kindle Owners can get Kindle for iPhone app

Charlie Sorrel of Wired's Gadget Lab reports a workaround for International Kindle users to get a hold of the Kindle for iPhone app, which is sold only in the US app store.  I missed this one while on that longish vacation.
' Thanks to the iTunes Store option to choose “none” as a payment method, you can sign up for a US iTunes account with nothing more than an e-mail address (not the one you normally use), a real address and a cellphone number.  Any free applications are then available to download, and best of all, when you hook up your iPhone or iPod Touch the application just syncs.

... this experiment showsjavascript:void(0) that US travelers will have access to Whispersync via their cellphones whilst abroad... this is limited to the books bought from the Kindle store. But hey, it’s free. If you know how to get it. '

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
