Amazon today announced that Kindle for Android, the free application that lets readers around the world enjoy Kindle books on their Android-powered devices, now includes a number of new features.

With the newest update, Kindle for Android now enables customers to search the full text of Kindle books by voice or text, seamlessly look up words and phrases in Wikipedia, lock screen orientation in portrait or landscape mode, and view details about a book on Shelfari, the books-focused social networking site — all without leaving the app. Additionally, Kindle for Android is the only reading app for Android-based devices that allows readers to add notes and highlights to books, and have them automatically synchronized between devices.

The app is available on Android Market and customers who have already downloaded the app will receive the update automatically. Customers can learn more about Kindle for Android here and download the app from Android Market.

Amazon launched the Kindle for Android app in June.
