Today Amazon has announced that it is expanding its Android Appstore to some 200 new countries. The company suggests that developers should start submitting their apps soon so that their can reach millions of new active Amazon customers in these markets as well. The apps will be available in the coming months, right after Amazon launches its Android Appstore for international markets. Some of these new countries include Canada, Mexico, South Africa, Australia and Brazil. The Appstore was initially launched only in the U.S. before being expanded in to European countries such as UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
The company does not sell its Kindle Fire tablet in these new markets, but that doesn’t mean that Android users won’t be able to download and use Amazon’s Android Appstore on their devices. Mike George, the VP of Apps and Game at Amazon, says that their apps platform is the complete end-to-end solution for developers who want to build, market and monetize their apps for Android and Kindle Fire. He says that most of their developers have already localized their apps for international markets.
