The Amazon store for Android apps is practically a certainty at this point. NDA’s are being sent out, facts and figures are being whispered, and tech blogs are going crazy.
The hot rumor this week is that Amazon is considering an Android app store of their own. Depending on where you read it, they are also mulling the idea of an Android device (tablet) as well. We’re almost 100% certain of the app store at this point, but we’re not completely sold on the tablet – yet. Looking forward with the assumption that the store launches in the near future, let’s examine a few reasons as to why it’s good for Android in genera
