Amazon made a custom Kindle store for Samsung Galaxy devices

Samsung is apparently starting to realize that its in-house efforts can’t compete with specialist alternatives but Samsung seems to be on a roll with bagging media partnerships for its Galaxy line of phones and tablets.

First music streaming service Deezer, and now it’s getting a custom-built Kindle book store in a deal with Amazon. Announced last week, the service also gives Galaxy owners referred to the service (starting with the GS5, but more to follow) 12 free books a year. Users will get four “prominent” titles a month to choose from, which have been “chosen specifically” for Galaxy owners (whatever that means). Samsung’s already laden with bespoke services, such as its Milk internet radio platform, its own custom app store, and there’s even an existing Samsung Books app. Of course, let’s not forget the existing Kindle app for Android. However, if you want to snag yourself those free libros, best you get Kindle for Samsung. Now.
