Kindle for Android Coming Soon
We've been wondering for quite a while about when Amazon would release a Kindle app for Android. They've released them for thge iPhone, Blackberry, Mac, and Windows, but Android users have been snubbed thus far. Well, according to Amazon, the snubbing will soon be over: they've confirmed that a Kindle app for Android will be released over the summer.
For those of you that aren't familiar, Kindle apps allow complete and automatic sync between your Kindle and the device on which the app is installed. So if you leave your Kindle at home and you're in the middle of a book, you can pick up where you left off on your mobile device, then grab your Kindle at home and it will update as well. If you see what I'm getting at here.
In addition, the Android app will allow you to browse for books and purchase them directly to your handset. Any such books will also be available on any other devices on you account, including of course the Kindle itself.
You can sign up for updates about the app on the Amazon site.
