Amazon Looks To 2011 For New Ways To Make Kindle An Even Bigger SuccessBy Mary Phillips on December 30, 2010, 9:26 am
Kindle shipments are expected to reach 4.5 million units in the first quarter of 2011, Kuo said. Global ebook reader sales have reached 12.1 million units, and are expected to reach 27 million next year. It’s not clear if this number includes the iPad, which has already itself sold more than 7 million units in its first two quarters and is expected to sell another 5 to 10 million in the final winter quarter.
Using Kindle For Android App
Additional new features include the ability to buy and download Kindle books and periodicals within the Kindle for Android app, share reading progress via social networks, and zoom closer to images and other graphics. Kindle for Android is the first major e-book app to offer periodicals on the Android platform. The new Kindle for Android app is available from Android Market. Customers who have already downloaded Kindle for Android will receive the update automatically.
The DIY to get Kindle on your NOOKcolor can be found at the source link below, and will help you enable the Android Market, as well as some other Google apps. Hacking the NOOKcolor looks just plain dangerous, but many have been seeing a lot of success in hacking this Android tablet that masquerades as an e-book reader. The process is rather tricky, and we’d suggest reading through all the instructions before you jump in. You may be fine completing the first 5 steps, but get completely lost at the next, so read carefully, or you could very well kill your NC if you don’t know what you’re doing.
Amazon will have no issue with your running the Kindle app on your Nook Color. It essentially means new customers for its e-book store even if those people haven’t bought a Kindle. If Amazon had an issue with that it wouldn’t have released the Kindle app for most portable devices currently on the market.
