Samsung and Amazon launch a custom Kindle e-book store for Galaxy devices
Samsung announced that it is collaborating with Amazon in launching a customized Kindle e-book store that will be exclusive to the Galaxy range of mobile devices and tablets. The service is debuting on the Galaxy S5 and is available on all Galaxy devices that run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and above globally. Amazon’s Kindle Store boasts over 500,000 titles in its catalogue that include best-selling books and magazines from around the world. To incentivize the service, Samsung and Amazon have mentioned that they will be rolling out a Samsung Book Deals initiative that allows customers to receive free titles on a monthly basis.
Samsung Book Deals is a referral-based initiative that allows users who recommended the service and users who then avail the service to receive up to 12 free e-books every year. Users can receive one free title every month, which they have to select from a list of four titles that are pre-selected by Amazon. You can download the Kindle e-book store in over 90 countries from Samsung’s store.
