    I found the following add on Anazon.com -- Free application for your Android phone - no Kindel required. There was no link to a download. It said -- Get free download, search for Kindel on Android Market. Could this be a hoax?

    I searched for Kindel on the Android market and found nothing about a free Kindel download. Does anyone use Kindel on their DROID? I would like to try to Kinde on my DROID; advice appreciated.

    Went to android.com/market, clicked Help, Searched for app kendle,, found posts such as --- why can't I find Kindle in the Market. How did you find Kindle on the Android Market?

    Did you try searching "Kindle" or just variations of the word? :)

    I've got Kindle on my Inc. There are quite a few free books available.
    I use it every day.
    I just did a search on the market for Kindle in various spellings and variations and the Kindle app came up first with every search.

    When I spelled it wrong it asked "did you mean Kindle".
    I think the magnifying glass in the upper right corner of the market must be broken on the OPs phone.I know search was stupid last night. I searched for "printshare" and got calendar apps, clock widgets, you name it but anything print or share related.
