Amazon to Open Android Market

Amazon May Open Android App Store Soon

Amazon is a go-to online market for many of us, and now it looks like it's adding smartphone apps to its selection. Rumors that the marketplace will be offering apps for your Android-powered phone seem to have been confirmed with a source who leaked Amazon's Terms and Conditions agreement for app developers.

The agreement outlines the rules developers must follow in order to participate in the store. It will cost $99 for them to sign up, and they must update the app if they also update the same offering on the Android Market or the Apple App Store.

Get more info on the new store (and another hot Amazon rumor) after the break.

In addition to all but confirming the Amazon app store, the source also says the company is planning to release a tablet, à la the iPad, but those rumors are still largely unconfirmed.

Amazon tablet or not, the app store spells good news for Android users. The current Android Market is great on a cell phone, but it sounds like it'll be nice to have an extensive web-based market to browse apps as well. Just make sure you trust the developer that you're downloading from.
