Amazon App Store finally rolling out internationally
posted by Michael H. / Sep 19, 2011, 10:56 AM
There hasn't been any official announcement from Amazon, but users around the world are reporting that both free and paid downloads are working through the Appstore. So far, there have been reports of the Appstore working in the UK, Australia, India, and Holland. This could just be some testing by Amazon to make sure it can handle the traffic, but it certainly points to the Appstore expanding internationally, and with the Amazon tablet not due out for another couple months, this gives Amazon plenty of time to work out any bugs.
*Rolling update* Our own readers have confirmed the Amazon Appstore working in: Portugal, Sweden, Romania, Belize, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Brazil, and Finland. Though one reader has said it is not working in Spain.
If you're an international reader, leave a comment and we'll update the article with countries where the Appstore is confirmed to work.
*Update 9/20/2011* It looks like Amazon turned off the world, and it's back to being US-only for the Appstore right now. We'll let you know if it comes back.

Peter stop acting like an idiot. There is no bada fan in the world thinking samsungapps is better than any other appstore. every one liking bada (not many) like other aspects but are very unhappy with the really bad development of Samsung apps. Why are you telling such a crap on this site day after day? Are you paid by Samsung mobile?
