Amazon App Store For Android?

Yes, you heard it right.  Today, a document to developers from Amazon was leaked and it contains some pretty interesting stuff.  Most importantly......Among the T&Cs are confirmation on the developer royalties – “equal to the greater of (i) 70% of the purchase price or (ii) 20% of the List Price” – together with the rumored $99 annual fee and the fact that Amazon retains the right to modify your binaries and add in their own DRM.

Also, Amazon will also retain a free copy of each title – for subsequent downloads from the store by users who have already paid for the app, even if you have withdrawn it from sale.

Now this isn't official yet, so don't get too excited but it looks like Google is taking a step back from control over what applications are approved.  This is obvious with this announcement and Verizon's V-Cast App Store intentions.

More to come!
