Amazon Appstore launches in new countries, it's now available in 236 markets
While lots of the additional territories may not be that important (revenue-wise) to Amazon, some of them are pretty big mobile markets - like Indonesia, Turkey, and Singapore. The full list also includes the following markets: Algeria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Chad, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Gambia, Guinea, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Palestinian Territories, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, UAE (United Arab Emirates), Uzbekistan, and Yemen.
Now in its fourth year of existence, Amazon Appstore hosts more than 240,000 applications for Android. While that is a high number, it’s still not comparable to the number of apps available in Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store, which are offering over 1 million apps each. It’s also a bit lower than the number of applications available in Microsoft’s Windows Phone Store (around 250,000).
