Amazon.com Launching Android App Store


This morning Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has announced that they are launching an Android app store. Today they are inviting developers to submit applications through their Developer website: http://developer.amazon.com. Supposedly the Android app store on Amazon.com will look better than the Android Market that Google runs itself. Amazon.com will review each application before approval. One of the problems with Amazon.com’s Android app store is fragmentation.

Having different application stores for the same platform decentralizes applications and content, thus making it annoying for the consumer. The Android app store on Amazon.com was revealed this past September.
