Amazon is rumored to be working on its own app store for Android that would compete with Google's Android Market. SlashGear got its hands on the store's terms and conditions for developers, and they seem to sync with the rumors from earlier this week. "Included in these terms are the royalties for developers, which would be 70% of an app's purchase price or 20% of its list price; and conditions for listing applications in other app stores, (apps must be released in the Amazon store at the exact same time as in other app stores, or earlier.)

While there's concern that an app store from a major Web retailer will just "fragment" Android further, an app store with Amazon could seriously kickstart the Android app economy, and would provide a single, unified media solution for Android devices."
