Amazon to launch Android app store

Amazon will launch its own app store to support Android-based devices, a source told Wired.com. Close to almost 50 apps will be available via an Amazon webpage (presumably http://www.amazon.com/apps) as well as downloadable through a native Amazon app.

Android users can currently download apps via the Google Android Market, and unlike Apple third parties can create their own shops based on the Android platform.

The folks at Amazon, if rumors are true, will be selective with the apps they choose to sell. As far as pricing, a leaked screenshot of the Amazon app showed prices competitive with Google’s own app store “Android Market.” Popular apps such as Wolfram Alpha, Zenonia and SetCPU were viewable in a scrolling window.

We’re just hours away from Tuesday, March 22, when we’ll see if Amazon does launch the app and how selective they are with titles they sell.
