Make sure you install the app store on your phone. The website still has not been updated.

Nope, still not working for me.
I can install the Amazon AppStore, but when I try to download Plants vs Zombies I get told it's not yet available for my region.

Maybe it's because I'm rooted/on a custom ROM for both my phone and tablet?

Same for me. Installed app ok (and already had Amazon account with address/credit card info) but can't download/install apps.
