AMSTERDAM, 6 décembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Booking.com (http://www.booking.com), le leader mondial des réservations en ligne d'hôtels et d'hébergement, a annoncé aujourd'hui le lancement de son application native gratuite pour Kindle Fire dans tous les appstores d'Amazon. La nouvelle application permet aux clients de Booking.com d'effectuer facilement leurs réservations et d'accéder à leur hôtel et hébergement à tout moment et de partout par le biais de leur Kindle Fire.

Selon Amazon, neuf des 10 produits les plus vendus sur Amazon.com ont été des Kindle, des accessoires et du contenu numérique pour Kindle depuis que la compagnie a dévoilé cette année, le 6 septembre, de nouveaux appareils.
