Report: Amazon Appstore To Open In Europe [allthingsd.com]
Amazon is getting close to launching its Appstore in Europe later this summer, marking the first time the store will be available outside the U.S., according to sources familiar with the companyís plans.
Timing is a little vague, but from what Iím hearing, the e-commerce giant is expected to announce next week that it will start accepting submissions from developers soon.
Similar to the Apple App Store and Google Play, Amazonís virtual store allows consumers to download mobile apps to Android phones and tablets. Once available, the Appstore will likely work across most Android devices in Europe, but more interesting to consider is whether the announcement signals that Amazon is preparing to sell the Kindle Fire internationally.
