kindle for android The Amazon for Kindle application is coming pre-loaded on the Samsung Galaxy S, but you can grab the application now on other Android devices. The Kindle for Android app is now in the Android Market, providing access to 620,000 e-books.

Non-US customers should be aware that not all books will be available to them because of licensing and distribution issues. However, those who already have a Kindle account and an Android 1.6 or higher device can log-in to read their treasured works.

We got a quick preview of the Amazon app while at Google I/O and we were impressed (video demo is below). Kindle provides a phone-friendly format for reading ebooks, bookmarking the last read page through Amazon Whispersync, and allows users to adjust text size, color, and brightness. That will obviously be useful when reading your favorite books, newspapers, and magazines that offer content in Kindle for Android.
