So you can order your phone or tablet through Amazon then immediately start buying apps for your new toy. All you will need to do is sign into the Amazon Appstore when your new device arrives and all of your apps will download automatically. This is some what interesting but really not all the surprising if you consider how the Kindle works. Do you think the power of Amazon can sustain a third party app market or will the Amazon Appstore be DoA?</p>
