Amazon is preparing to open an Android app store, and is currently accepting applications from developers for Android-based smartphones, according to a Amazon blog post.

The applications will be sold on the Amazon Appstore for Android, which the company expects to launch later in 2011. At launch, the Appstore will be available for customers in the U.S., and it will be compatible with Android 1.6 and higher. Users will be able to shop for applications from their PCs, which isn’t possible with the existing version of Android Market, or from their smartphones, and pay with their existing Amazon account. The store will carry free and paid applications.
