Amazon App Store finally rolling out internationally

Amazon App Store finally rolling out internationally
We knew it had to happen before the Amazon tablet hit the streets, and it looks like it's true: the Amazon Appstore is expanding to more countries around the world. Until now, the Appstore has only been available to US users. 

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.

Just downloaded a free app from Belize. Which means it must have rolled out to damn near everywhere cause we're usually the last to get anything.

Now i am really feeling for our "bada-man" (read PETER)....... The poor chap would honestly be looking lustily at this from his self-confined stone age cell peculiarly called BADA...... PEACE MAN, PEACE.

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?
