    Amazon Kindle App now preloaded on Droid 2, Droid X, Fascinate


    Verizon Wireless and Amazon.com have announced the Kindle Android App will now come preloaded on the Motorola Droid 2, Droid X and Samsung Fascinate. Kindle for Android now offers access to over 700,00 ebooks to conveniently enjoy anywhere on your phone.

    “We’re very excited to bring Kindle for Android directly to Verizon Wireless customers,” said Jennifer Byrne, executive director, business development and partnerships for Verizon Wireless. “Our smartphones come with great screens that make buying and reading books simple and easy, and Amazon’s commitment to reading and offering a seamless customer experience is directly in line with what our customers want.”

    “Customers are already telling us they love Kindle for Android, and we think they are going to be excited to get their Verizon Wireless phones and other devices preloaded with the Kindle app,” said Dave Limp, vice president, Kindle. “We are thrilled to be working with such an innovative company as Verizon Wireless and are excited to have Kindle for Android on these three phones and on other devices down the road.”

    Customers can also find the app by searching for “Kindle” in Android Market™. For more information about the free Kindle app, go to Amazon.com: Free Kindle Reading Apps.

    More preloaded apps! Yay!

    ... Seriously? Does anyone find the concept of more non-removable apps appealing?

    Haha this was my first reaction: Yet another app you can't delete. Of course I'm still rockin the D1 on which internal storage is at least 1/2 the size of newer devices.

    whats the point of the market then? why not just load every single app in the android market. that is theoretically the same thing, because who are they to say how important one app is over another? it's all about $$$ though...

    On my X the pre-installed Kindle app wouldn't update. I had to install it as a new app (which wiped the old one) and now it will update when needed.

    That is how pre-installed apps work, they do not appear in your Google Market list until after the first time you update them. Examples include Google Search and Car Home when they were updated in the Market. You had to search for them first.
