This new Amazon app for iPad differs from the Kindle for iPad, which is for Kindle-library book access on the iPad.
This app is for shopping at Amazon while you're on the iPad and it would include the Kindle bookstore as well as all the other areas of Amazon.
Sam Hall, director of Amazon Mobile was quoted in a PR release as saying that "This application offers customers a unique, interactive experience that takes full advantage of the visual and tactile nature of the iPad." Key features of the app as described by the press release:

' Optimized specifically for iPad, the app takes advantage of the “generous display size” to show off products in their full glory, including awesome image galleries, detailed product descriptions, as well as editorial and customer reviews. We’re not talking about dumb web pages rendered inside an embedded browser, but a brand new layout that feels nimble, responsive, and a pleasure to use. '
