    Amazon has finally pushed its US-only Appstore for Android out to (at least some of) the rest of the world, with UK users and those in a handful of other countries now able to download apps via the official Amazon Appstore app.

    The Amazon Appstore web site still carries the disclaimer that it’s only available to customers in the US, but some in the UK have tried using the Amazon Appstore app on Android in the UK…

    …and look, it’s actually working. Prices are still showing in dollars, but still. Free App of the Day is now GO without any region hacking. ;) You’ll need to manually install the Amazon Appstore app direct from Amazon to make it work. Let us know if you also have access.

    Just tried it on my android phone and get the usual - not supported in your region message. Wish Amazon would hurry up. How hard can it be?
