Amazon expanding Android Appstore to almost 200 countries Amazon has announced the expansion of their Android Appstore.
Developers can now submit apps for distribution in almost 200 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, India, South Africa, South Korea, "and even Papua New Guinea and Vatican City."

Users of Android devices in the nations (not just Kindles) can start downloading apps "in the coming months."

"Amazon's platform is a complete end-to-end solution for developers wanting to build, market and monetize their apps and games on Kindle Fire and Android devices," said Mike George, Vice President of Apps and Games at Amazon. "Allowing developers to target distribution of their apps and games in even more international countries is yet another important milestone as we strive to serve consumers and developers globally. Many of our existing developers have localized their apps and games for international consumers, and we look forward to working with new developers that have been waiting to bring their apps to more Amazon customers across the globe."
