Amazon Boasts “Hundreds Of Millions Of Apps & Games” Downloaded

Amazon put out a press release today announcing that “customers have downloaded hundreds of millions of apps and games from the Amazon Appstore.” Earlier this week Amazon opened up its App Store in Europe. This news comes as Amazon is expected to announce new Kindle Fire devices at a press conference on September 6th.

Yesterday, the online giant reported that they sold out of Kindle Fires, without any mention of restocking. Yesterday, The Verge leaked images of what the devices will supposedly look like.
