Recently there was an open letter to Amazon from Bithack, a mobile developer in Sweden, announcing that they were pulling their title from Amazon’s App Store and detailing what led to that decision. You can see the letter here (http://bithack.se/news/apparatus-amazon-july-4-2011.html) but we’ll summarize in a moment. ”What does this have to do with the Kindle store?”, you may ask. I hope nothing, but it’s worth looking at what lead to Bithack’s decision and looking into whether or not the same things could happen on the Kindle store.
Whether you realize it or not, many of the Android and mobile developers in the industry are the same teams creating content for Kindle. If the practices of Amazon’s Android group are replicated by the Kindle group we could see these teams pulling out of the Kindle market as well.
