Online shopping is a luxury best enjoyed from the sofa, some might say. So fans waiting to get their hands on an iPad might be interested to hear about Amazon's latest innovation.
The internet retailer has released details of a new app - similar to the existing one for iPhone and iPod Touch - available for the Apple gadget.
Sam Hall, director of Amazon Mobile, said: "We've used our customers' feedback to help us build a fun and intuitive shopping destination on the iPad ... that takes full advantage of [its] visual and tactile nature."
One-click ordering, recommendations and access to existing accounts have all been optimised for use and movie trailers and sample songs should be enhanced by the large screen.
The company has claimed exhaustive bestseller details, product information and reviews are all used regularly by consumers and each will be available of the iPad once it is released in the UK on May 28th.
Apple is accepting pre-orders for its latest release and prices for the tablet start at £429.
