Amazon Appstore for Android will be available in Canada “in the coming months”


Amazon just announced that they’ll be launching the Amazon Appstore for Android into new territories, including our fine land. They’re encouraging developers to submit their apps for customer availability “in the coming months.”

“Amazon.com, Inc. continued the global expansion of its Appstore today by announcing that developers can now submit their apps for distribution in nearly 200 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, India, South Africa, South Korea, and even Papua New Guinea and Vatican City. These apps will be made available in the coming months when the Amazon Appstore for Android launches internationally for consumers.”

Back in December Amazon brought Canadians the Kindle eReader, but most people really wanted to grab hold of one of the Kindle Fire family of tablets. This news means that we’re possibly one step closer, however, even if the Kindle Fire doesn’t come to Canada the Amazon Appstore gives Android users another alternative to purchase and download apps on their device.
