Amazon Kindle for Android Launched

Amazon has launched Amazon Kindle for Android OS based smartphones. To run Kindle on your Android device you need to be running at least Android 1.6.

Features on the Android version of Kindle are similar to those of the other devices in that the app syncs up to your Amazon account and allows you to sync books, bookmarks, annotations etc… so that reading a book on your Android phone and then switching to an iPad Kindle App will let you carry on reading from where you left off.
