The app supports all versions of Android from 1.6 up. And don't forget - your purchases are linked by account, not device - meaning any books you purchase on your actual Kindle can be accessed in the Kindle app on your phone.

    I haven't updated. Yet? Comments in the Market say that if you update you must provide a credit card number.
