So far, Amazon’s Appstore, which competes with Google’s own Play Store on Android apps, has been stuck within U.S. borders. A report from All Things D, however, says that may be about to change soon. The online retail company, the site says, is preparing to launch in Europe. No details on when beyond “later this summer” were available.
All Things D speculates that this might herald the arrival of the Kindle Fire, however it also rightly points out that launching a device in a new country is more complicated than launching a software storefront. We’re a little skeptical that an international launch of the Appstore will mean the Kindle Fire is heading to our friends across the pond.
