Kindle for Android Now Tailored for Tablets

A new update to Kindle for Android announced today brings new features and adds support for tablet computers running Android’s Honeycomb, including the Motorola Xoom.

The latest version of Kindle for Android includes a new layout for newspapers and magazines designed for the unique interface of Honeycomb, and dozens of other new enhancements that take advantage of the larger screens.

Like all Kindle apps, Kindle for Android includes Amazon's Whispersync technology, which saves and synchronizes a customer's books and bookmarks across their Kindle, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, PC, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and Android-based phones and tablets.

Customers can download the app from the Amazon Appstore for Android or Android Market.


New features of Kindle for Android include:
  • Seamless integrated shopping experience tailored for tablets gives you quick access to personalized recommendations, customer reviews, and more
  • Refined newspaper and magazine layout including full color images
  • Ability to pause, resume download at any time
  • Enhanced word look-up capability (for Android-based phones and tablets) with built-in dictionary with over 250,000 entries and definitions.
