To tie in with the CES 2011 show, Amazon is to develop the Kindle eBook reader apps for Android- and Windows-based tablets, following on from its iPhone App, which was released last year.

Amazon said Android and Windows tablet users will be able to access the Kindle Store. Users will be able to "Buy Once, Read Everywhere" on Kindle, Kindle 3G, Kindle DX, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, PC, Blackberry and Android-based devices.

"Many people are buying both a Kindle and an LCD tablet computer," said Dorothy Nicholls, director of Amazon Kindle. "We're very excited to support the upcoming Android and Windows LCD tablet computers with free Kindle apps that we'll tailor for the particular devices."
