Although we’ve known for some time Amazon will open an Android App Store (a developer site is already available), it wasn’t clear when the service would launch. However, an unintended sneak peak has given rise to speculation the App Store is almost ready to go live.
A German website Wednesday found 50 Android applications listed at an Amazon URL, which quickly disappeared. Among the titles listed were Zenonia, Raging Thunder II, SetCPU, The Moron Test and SwiftKey. Many of the app prices bested Google’s Android Market and some even were exclusive to the Internet bookseller.
The German website Androidnews.de compiled a database of what it found prior to the amazon.com/apps being redirected to amazon.com. Earlier this month, “Angry Birds” developer Rovio said its game will be one of the first apps available at the Amazon store, expected to open within weeks.
