Amazon releases Kindle apps and e-books into China

Amazon has started its Chinese Kindle incursion by launching the reader app for Android and iOS in that market, along with a large selection of e-books. There's no mention of any Kindle devices like the Fire HD in the nation yet, but Amazon just did a similar launch in Brazil and said the hardware would be along there in a few weeks. Four Kindle devices recently showed up China's FCC-like Radio Management Agency as well, according to TNW, another good omen for those anxious to get the devices in that country. And the number who want one could be considerable -- China's been carrying on an illicit love affair with the Kindle for quite awhile, after all.
