Android, Google's highly anticipated mobile phone software set to launch Tuesday, and Apple's iPhone have often been mentioned in the same breath, for features they may--or may not--have in common.
Add one more feature to the list, if a VentureBeat source is right: Amazon is said to have an iTunes-like application for Android. VentureBeat says it got a tip that an HTC phone running Android was spotted in a bar in the San Francisco Bay Area over the weekend and that it had such an Amazon application on it.
But, according to VentureBeat, the source said he believes there will be a key difference:
One thing you cannot yet do through the mobile iTunes store...is buy/rent movies or any other form of video. Our source believes that Amazon's app will allow for that.
The blog goes on to say that Amazon's store on Android is likely to be a mobile version of its MP3 online store.
