Prime members will get one selection free each month
Amazon has announced a new program called Kindle First that gives customers the chance to access digital Kindle books a month in advance of their official release date.
Along with offering early access to the books, Amazon will also be giving some notes and recommendations along with a behind the scenes look at the stories and the author. Amazon customers will be able to choose one of the featured books each month for $1.99. Amazon users who subscribe to Prime will be able to select the book at no cost.
Amazon will be sending out monthly e-mails alerting users of the Kindle First selections for the month. Books can be selected from the Kindle store on the Amazon.com website or via the Kindle device itself.
“Prime just keeps getting better for our members, and any customer will find something interesting in our Kindle First picks,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content. “We also love that these amazing books by Amazon Publishing authors will get a chance to reach a much wider audience.”
Kindle First comes right on the heels of the
recently announced Kindle Matchbook
program. Matchbook allows Amazon shoppers to get digital versions of print books they've purchased all the way back to 1995 at little or no cost.

Amazon video streaming is available on Android... but only via Kindle Fire. It's not in the generic marketplace; that much is true.
But then, if you're a Prime member, the new Kindle Fire makes a lot of sense.
Of course, much like iTunes, that's basically the point.
