Amazon plans an Android app store - The Boston Globe

The store may open this month, said the person, who declined to be identified because the plan has not been announced. An Android store would help Amazon benefit from rising demand for games, entertainment, and workplace tools that can be downloaded to hand-held computers — a market Booz & Co. says may balloon to $40 billion by 2014, from $14.3 billion this year.

Developers and consumers have complained that Google’s Android Market makes it difficult to accept consumer payments and to find apps.
