Amazon launches app to sell e-books

Amazon has launched a free Kindle bookstore application to sell e-books on its Chinese website, a move widely seen as a prelude to Kindle tablets’ entry into China, the world’s biggest mobile device market.

Amazon, with its Kindle series of electronic ink screen and touch screen tablet computers, is the world’s biggest online bookstore and e-book reader vendor.

But its Chinese website only sold real books and other goods without Kindle tablets and services though Amazon started China business a decade ago.
