Amazon Appstore UK?

Will Amazon Appstore arrive in the UK? Apparently not, if Apple have anything to do with it! UK Amazon Appstore was supposed to go live 22nd March 2011, then suddenly Amazon pulled the plug without explanation.


However, recent news has suggested Apple trademarked the term "Appstore" back in the days when they first released their own err... app store. Now it transpires that Apple are going to pursue legal action to stop Amazon from using the very same term, "Appstore". They have been quoted as saying:

"Consumers of mobile software downloads are likely to be confused as to whether Amazon's mobile software download service is sponsored or approved by Apple."

Our answer to that is; why would any android user care if Amazon Appstore is approved by Apple or not? Also, why doesn't this affect the US Appstore?

It seems that Apple are simply determined that will not be having a bite of their fruit anytime soon.


Hopefully these two giants will settle down and play nicely. We will probably see Appstore released soon, likely under another name. In the meantime, supermarkets and greengrocers beware, Apple could be after you next for trademark infringements :)
