Amazon Appstore Live Today

Depending on when you read this, it might already be open. UPDATE: The Appstore is now open online.

Gizmodo and Engadget both reported early this morning that, like I predicted last week,  the Amazon Appstore opened today. Unfortunately, the link stopped working for me. If you’re really interested in the idea, you might want to keep trying the link throughout the day.

When the link starts working again, you’ll find that the AA has 3,800 apps in it, including the Kindle Android app, Angry Birds Rio, as well as apps from major developers including  Gameloft, Glu Mobile and Rovio. There are both paid and free apps in the store, and Amazon also offers a  trial period of 30 minutes.
