Amazon isn't exactly impartial when it comes to tablets... you may have heard about this little thing called the Kindle Fire. But they aren't ones to let competition get in the way of a little profit, which is why the latest update to their storefront app includes compatibility with a plethora of new Android tablets, including the coveted Nexus 10. Previously it was limited to Android 4.1 tablets with very specific resolutions. The free app is available on the Play Store.

Resolution support has been bumped up to 2560x1600, which includes the Nexus 10 and probably a few more tablets in the first half of 2013. You'll still need a device with at least 1024x600 resolution and Android 4.0 - what few Honeycomb users remain will just have to make due with the web interface. There are also a few standard bugfixes and performance bumps. Price comparisons, galleries, full reviews, and a snappy interface are all unchanged from the previous version.

Thanks, Amazon... now how's about that video app?

      It works with the Nexus 7.

      In fact the Nexus 7 was the first and only device it was able to work on for some time.

    And still US only - that's weird.

  • Sean Powell

    Anyone upload the apk for those of us outside the US?

    • OFI

      It won't work as this is for Amazon.com.
      This regional restriction is so stupid since you can't download the mobile version on the play store either =/

  • primalxconvoy

    If only Amazon would seperate the language from the geographical region, allowing, for example, English speakers to use the app in japan with the same ease that the desktop site allows users to. The same with the mobile site. If only Amazon could understand mobile better, sigh...

  • Jack Roberts

    could someone please upload the apk for us Brits please

      Was going to ask if it was available to UK users, but I couldn't find it in the Play Store still and the comments here seem to confirm that.

        Amazon always support the American market first with everything from their App Store to their site layout. All we Brits have to have is patience.

          Oh I'm used to it, I mean I actually waited for the official release of Play Music rather than use the work around to enable it on my account. But it does get a little tiresome. But on the whole this is not a big deal for me as I just use the website on the N7 anyway. What my patience is running out on is the N4 bumper coming back in stock long enough for me to get an order in haha.

    Still not available in the UK on my nexus 7 from the play store but I can install the mobile version if I first install amazon app store. Classy.

  • Matthew Fry
