Amazon Bringing Magazines and Newspapers to Kindle Apps →

Via Fast Company

Amazon’s expanding the capabilities of its Kindle apps, starting with Android, to include digital newspaper and magazines singly or in subscription form…

It’s designed to directly compete with Apple’s iPad, which is making huge strides in reinventing the magazine publishing game, and garnering big headlines—and it’s timed to coincide with a surge in Android phones becoming available, and going on sale over the holiday season, and before Android tablets begin to arrive in bigger numbers in early 2011.
