  • Amazon has greatly invested in its offer in regards to the Android platform and is currently selling its Kindle devices and offering apps all in one place. On the down side it is currently only available in the US, though it was announced that Canada will also get it “in the coming months”.


    Recent rumors state that Amazon may be planning on greatly expanding its offer to a lot of new territories. These kind of rumors are by far not new and there have been provided more or less in the same form in the past. It is in regards to its Appstore that Amazon wants to expand and provide its offers to people around the world.

    The presumed expansion plans by Amazon are for providing its services mainly in Europe, with “nearly 200 countries,” getting the service also in Japan. It is a move that is likely to attract Android developers towards providing their work exclusively for Amazon where the environment may be more beneficial. Peter Sleeman, Director of P2 Games, has recently stated that its most recent release was sold 4-5x more times than on the Google Play Store. Still we estimate that it will take Amazon some time to get past each country’s bureaucracy, a struggle that Google has been facing for a great while.
