Sucks to be a AT&T user w/o sideloading...

Amazon page says it is working with AT&T to provide support... I wonder how long that will take...

It's very disappointing to see that the Amazon App is required to run any application downloaded from their store - even free ones. So, if the Amazon app is removed from your phone, all applications download from Amazon won't work.

Plus, I tried to figure out what their return policy is on Android apps. I can't find any mention of that. I'm having fun with Angry Birds Rio, but will probably use the Google Market as my first source for apps.

And it's not available in the UK either, so not only do I not get free Angry Birds Rio, but I don't get Rio at all if it doesn't hit the Android Marketplace.

Nice.

Don't you know? Only Microsoft steals ideas, Apple has never stolen anything or copied a product, it's all original. LMAO!

Apple has already filed a lawsuit.
Have to say trademarking App Store is like trademarking Grocery Store. It is not like trademarking "Windows" or "iTunes". The term is too generic and commonly used in vernacular to stand up in court. They can only hope to either tarnish Amazons name or polarize even more the Apple faithful.

Well, my guess is that the Amazon App has the DRM. That way, you don't have to enter product keys into the apps you buy. Since these apps aren't integrated into the Marketplace, they must have copy-protection somehow (app producers aren't that stupid).

Wait so how the hell do I get AB RIO here in Australia?
Is it just me, or are all online American companies stupid and just love missing out on a worldwide market?

I got it. Looks good. It's not overrated. Just a stolen concept. Check out Crush the castle. This concept has been around a long time just found it's true home mobile.
