Amazon in price war with Google over Android apps

Amazon has announced that it is planning to launch its very own Android App store. And AndroidNews got a sneak peek at the, as yet, unlaunched store and uncovered evidence that Amazon is planning to engage in a price war with Google's Android Market.

Amazon has announced that it is planning to launch its very own Android App store. And AndroidNews got a sneak peek at the, as yet, unlaunched store and uncovered evidence that Amazon is planning to engage in a price war with Google's Android Market.

It seems that there will be some bargains to be had. For example, Scan2PDF Mobile 2.0, which costs $6.44 in the Android Market, will sell for $3.99 at Amazon's App store. Farm Frenzy costs $3.21 in the market is $2.99 at Amazon, and Akinator, which is $2.06 from Google is $1.49 in the Amazon store.

Amazon also has some exclusives, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Force Recon ($2.99), Brainwave Tuner ($3.99) and, as I posted about the other day, Angry Birds Rio.

So, what do you think? Will a price war be good for consumers, or bad for developers?
