Amazon’s new Kindle, announced last night, looks nicer than its last one. And despite competition from the likes of Apple’s iPad, the Kindle’s new, lower pricing should keep it selling.But what about the Kindle app platform, which Amazon announced in January and hasn’t said much about since?
But we reached out to Amazon last night for an update.
“We’re working on it,” an Amazon rep tells us. “We have some great developers in the beta.”
For what it’s worth, Amazon’s Kindle page doesn’t say anything about the in-the-works app platform, either. But Amazon still has several months to fulfil its claim from January to have apps available “later this year.”
