Amazon Unveils Kindle Lite in Kenya

Amazon has announced the launch of Kindle Lite, the lightest reading app for Android smartphones in Kenya.

Designed specifically for smartphones with limited storage that run on slower networks, the app is only 2 MB and provides you with a great reading experience even over 2G/3G networks.

The Kindle Lite app is free and includes features readers love, like an integrated dictionary for users to easily look up the definition of a word.

The app also makes it easier to browse and read from a collection of over 5 million eBooks, including thousands of free eBooks. Kindle Lite is available today and can be downloaded for free in the Google Play Store.

“The ability to get lost in reading a great story should not be limited by the speed of your network or storage size of your phone,” said Sherif Yacoub, Vice President, Kindle. “We designed the Kindle Lite app to improve the reading experience for all our Kenyan customers – offering faster downloads, instant reading, and a lighter app.”

The Kindle Lite for Android, at just 2 MB, is ideal for smartphones with limited storage. With the app, users can read anytime, even on a slower data connection, including 2G/3G networks and dive right into an eBook without waiting for it to fully download.

With the app, users can instantly browse books and read free samples without logging in and can also explore thousands of free books from a rotating selection in the Kindle Store.
