Rumors of an Android app store launching from Amazon have all but been confirmed today through a leaked distribution agreement meant for developers. Among the terms listed, we see that devs royalties will “equal to the greater of (i) 70% of the purchase price or (ii) 20% of the List Price” and that Amazon will retain a free copy of each app submitted for users who have already paid for the app even if it has been pulled from sale.
There is also a rumored $99 annual fee to be a part of the store. We’re all still waiting for confirmation from Amazon, but you’ve got to think it will be coming any day now. To read the full agreement, hit up the source link below.
I’ve got to admit that I’m more excited to see an Amazon app store than I am a Verizon VCAST version. Thoughts?
