They really are trying to reach out and put a Kindle app on everything..... why is it people complain that they can only read their books on a Kindle, again?

I can just imagine Kindle for Android loaded onto a nook.

I just hope that it will work on a large screen not just a phone screen without a hack.

I hate Google but their creation of Android is brilliant. It makes the web, and therefore Google advertising, ubiquitous.

Generally speaking all Android apps will scale to the native screen resolution.

For example, my Android phone has a resolution of around 850x600 (can't remember the exact numbers but it's 16:9 and around 850 pixels wide) and all the apps I use scale perfectly to this resolution. Many Android tablets have a resolution not much higher than my phone.

Given Android's versatility for screen sizes I can't imagine the app won't scale beautifully.

Now someone needs to make an Android tablet with a colour e-ink display capable of video and I'll pay whatever they ask!

I'd be a bit dubious, though, of hacking the Kindle app to run on the nook and being able to use the eInk display. More likely, it would want to use the color LCD by default.

Maybe the Alex would be a better device to try this app.

The Android Kindle App has arrived! So far so good, though there's no way to read books stored on the device itself. Only books managed via your Kindle account. It looks very nice for a first go though.
