Looks like March the 22nd if the sources are correct. About time! Really looking forward to what Amazon can offer.

So it won't be US only?

It's ad-based.....and that has a geographic feel to it. Would be pleasantly surprised to learn otherwise.

Yeah US for the launch. But they'll open it up if it's a success. Will be good to see what it has to offer. Hopefully they don't restrict the appstore view via IP. Although we can all get round that.

I don't see what they can have to offer that the Android Market doesn't have. The only thing I get outside market is Gameloft games. speaking of which they currently have 2 games for $3 nzd if you scroll to the bottom of their page while on your phone and find the link about free games.

I think they're going for some exclusivity aswell. Angry Birds Rio etc. Hard to tell until it launches this week.

I got the email this morning from Amazon saying the app store was here. Tried downloading angry birds rio but of course only for US customers.... :-(




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
