Default Amazon App Store Comes On Tuesday

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/03/amazon-app-store-tuesday/' target='_blank'>http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011...-store-tuesday/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Retail giant Amazon is preparing to launch its own app store on the Android platform on Tuesday, March 22, a trusted source told Wired.com. First leaked in September, Amazon&rsquo;s Android app store will be a curated market, meaning Amazon reviewers will determine which apps are allowed inside, similar to Apple&rsquo;s iTunes App Store. That&rsquo;s a contrast to Google&rsquo;s &ldquo;anything goes&rdquo; policy for apps that appear in the Android Marketplace.</em>"</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1300537433.usr7.jpg" /></p><p>Curated marketplace is an interesting concept for Android, and I'm curious to see if this is flocked to by users looking for "better" apps. Although I suspect survival of the fittest works well in the normal Marketplace. An interesting experiment set to launch by Amazon this week.</p>

I do wonder if they're working on a Kindle Color which, like the Nook Color, is an Android-based tablet. I don't doubt that it would sell well.
