The Kindle Android app will be free, providing access to more than 540,000 books included in the Kindle Store, directly from your Android phone (notice how the number of books doubled since last year?). In case you’re wondering, only the app is free, the Kindle books are not.
The app features Amazon’s Whispersync technology, which lets you synchronize bookmarks across several devices (including the Kindle, Kindle DX, Macs and PCs). You can read books in portrait or landscape mode, and turn pages by taping or flicking.
The Kindle app for Android will be available “in the summer” – which means in August the latest. The app requires an external memory card, as well as Android OS 1.6 or higher. More info here at Amazon’s website.
