Amazon Android App Store Has Kobo Books App!

Wow. This makes my head explode.


Click = big

This gives more credence to Jeff Bezos’ past assertions that each part of Amazon is run as a separate business. Here, the App Store doesn’t give a damn that this might impact the Kindle hardware or Kindle eBook businesses. It’s doing what’s good for the App Store customers.

Right now, searching for “Kobo” comes up with zero in search. I had to be pointed to this listing by Kobo. Here is the link.

So, are the apps for Nook and Sony Reader also in there somewhere?

If they don’t go all crazy, demanding a 30% vig like Apple, Amazon will be providing reasons for people to use Android for eBooks with a move like this.
