Amazon Kindle App Coming to Android OS Smartphones

Amazon is releasing a Kindle App for Android OS smartphones. The application, like on other platforms, is free to download and will allow users to read Kindle eBooks on their Android device.

Just like other versions of the Kindle App, the Android version will also include the Whispersync function that allows all your devices running Kindle to be synchronised with bookmarks, annotations and where you were last reading.

‘Kindle for Android is the perfect companion application for Kindle and Kindle DX owners, and is also a great way for customers to enjoy over 540,000 books in the Kindle Store even if they don’t yet have a Kindle, said Jay Marine, director, Amazon Kindle. ‘We think customers are going to love the convenience and simplicity of having instant access to a massive selection of books from Amazon on their Droid, Nexus, Incredible and many more Android devices.

There is no official release date for the Amazon Kindle Android app, but we expect that it will be in the next few weeks. For those interested in Kindle for Android, Amazon has set up a page with all the details along with a place to register for receiving updates via email as to when the app will arrive.
