Amazon launched its Appstore for Android way back in March, with a cheeky Angry Birds Rio exclusive free download. Apple had a good moan about the whole thing (surprise, surprise), but the book giant soldiered on with its plans regardless.
It’s been fairly quiet on the US-only Amazon Appstore for Android front since then, but some international users are now claiming that they’ve been able to download apps.
Specifically, peeps in western Europe, India and Australia say they’ve been able to make use of the service, which offers a daily free app and the ability to "test drive" content. However, on attempting to access the Amazon Appstore for Android myself, I get the following message:
Engadget confirms that it’s been able to access the Amazon Appstore for Android via Amazon.com with its UK account, though it’s not clear which country the guy (or gal) was in at the time.
This is all very bizarre, and as yet there hasn't been any indication from Amazon that the service is available to anyone other than Yanks.
Have any Mobotniks had any luck? Let us know how you get on, dudes.
