gTunes? Amazon store in Android platform
Apple’s iTunes will not walk alone in the mobile industry: an Amazon music and video store application will run on Google’s Android mobile platform. Yeah, it’s a special suprise prior to T-Mobile’s HTC-built G1 launch tomorrow!

Such an app makes perfect sense. One of the key selling points of the iPhone remains the fact that it is also a great iPod music player. The fact that it can connect and download music directly from the iTunes store on the device, is great for getting music on the go. One thing you cannot yet do through the mobile iTunes store however is buy/rent movies or any other form of video. Our source believes that Amazon’s app will allow for that.
The Amazon music store on Android will almost for sure be a mobile version of its AmazonMP3 online digital music store, which is gaining popularity, but still far behind iTunes. Any video store would seem to be based on Amazon’s just relaunched Video On Demand service. It would seem unlikely though that you’ll be able to stream movies over the service, instead, I would bet you’ll only be able to buy them.
Looking forward to hear more Amazon’s mobile store details for Android.
