Verizon Wireless in the US will offer Android devices with the Kindle, the popular e-reader app from Amazon, bundled as a free application. The service will be initially available in select Android devices, including Samsung Fascinate, Motorola Droid 2 and Motorola Droid X. The company hopes to make Kindle available on more devices in the future.

Kindle for Android lets customers discover and read from over 700,000 books in the Kindle Store. The app allows customers to browse, download and reading books directly from their Android phone. Features of the Kindle app include:

  • Buy Once, Read Everywhere – Amazon’s Whispersync technology syncs your bookmark across devices, so you can pick up where you left off.
  • With Kindle Worry-Free Archive, books purchased from the Kindle Store are automatically backed up online, where they can be re-downloaded at any time.
  • The US Kindle Store now boasts of a library of 700,000 books, including new releases and 107 of 111 New York Times Bestsellers. Over 575,000 of these books are $9.99 or less, including 80 New York Times Bestsellers.
