Verizon to Load Amazon App Suite on New Android Devices
DROID DNA by HTC will have it pre-loaded right from the start
In addition to announcing the launch of the new DROID DNA by HTC, Verizon Wireless also unveiled on Tuesday plans to have Amazon’s App Suite loaded on its new Android devices.In fact, it seems that the new high-end 5-inch full HD smartphone will be the very first handset in the wireless carrier’s offering to hit shelves with the suite of applications loaded on it.
According to Verizon, the availability of these apps on its devices will provide users with an appealing experience while on the go.
“Mobile technology can simplify every aspect of daily life, including how we shop,” the wireless carrier notes in a blog post.
“With the holiday shopping season just around the corner, major brands like Amazon are creating a seamless mobile shopping experience for customers.”
Verizon’s devices powered by Google’s mobile operating system will feature pre-loaded apps such as Amazon Shopping, MP3, Zappos, Kindle and Audible, which are already available on select smartphones at the wireless carrier.
However, starting with this month, these applications will be offered as an integrated experience on the handsets’ homescreens, providing users with a single sign in option, recommendations, customer reviews, and one-click ordering.
Furthermore, the offer includes Amazon Prime free two-day shipping, as well as access to the company’s library of over 22 million Kindle books and MP3 songs. Have a look at the video embedded below to make a better idea of what the suite is all about.
“With Black Friday just around the corner, many consumers are looking for convenient ways to get great deals,” Big Red continues.
“By offering a fast and convenient, as well as secure, mobile shopping experience, holiday shoppers can quickly find that perfect gift. Just put on your favorite reindeer sweater, load up your device with some holiday music, and the festive atmosphere is complete, without the crowds.”
