That’s what it certainly looks like if these accidentally posted applications found over at Amazon.com are anything to go by.
AndroidNews.de were snooping around Amazon’s website recently and managed to find a a bunch Android applications which seemingly look to have been accidentally added to the site before it’s official launch.
The applications, 41 in total included some of the most popular Android application currently available for the number one mobile platform. Zenonia, Raging Thunder II, SetCPU, The Moron Test and SwiftKey, just to name a few all look set to be readily available on the new store.


More interestingly though was some of the prices of the leaked applications which actually cost quite a bit less on the upcoming Amazon store than they do on the official Google Android store; Scan2PDF for example costs a whopping $6.44 on the Android market, however on Amazon the price is much lower at $3.99. Our favorite photo application Vignette is also cheaper at $2.49 on Amazon, where as the Android market price is over $4!

It will be interesting to see what the real Amazon market will be like once officially launched, and how Google will react!
