Buy Kindle from Amazon Prime Day, Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

It's been on Blackberry, iPhone, and iPad for quite some time now, and now the Android platform is finally feeling its share of the all-encompassing Kindle love.
A Kindle for Android app is now available from the Android Market as a free download. Once the software is installed, users can buy digital books from Amazon for around $10 each.

And just like all the other Kindle apps out there, this one has WhisperSync technology, which means that if you get to page 52 on your iPod Touch Kindle app and want to continue reading on your Android phone, it will immediately load up page 52 on the phone.

The announcement comes on the same day that Amazon threw out a bunch of bells and whistles for the iPhone and iPad version of the Kindle software, which the Android version does not have, but at least users of the most popular mobile OS in the country are no longer left out entirely.
