It does not happen often, but after some months the Amazon Kindle app for Windows Phone had seen a minor update.
New in version 18.104.22.168 is a fix for the stuck loading screen and also a fix for the app crashing on start up.
The app of course continues to provide access to more than 1 million kindle books, will sync your reading position via whispernet with our PC and Kindle tablet, and also provide access to both free and paid books.
The updated client can be found in the Windows Phone Store here.
Unlike Google, Amazon is rather agnostic about which platform it supports, merely wanting to make its content available as widely as possible.
Therefore, while we cant always take what customer reps say seriously, we think there is a high likelihood that this Amazon customer support representative is right when they say an Amazon Prime Instant Video client for Windows phone is being worked on, and may be available soon.
According to our tipster when asked about an app for Windows Phone the Instant Video support rep said:
“We understand that the market for Windows phones is huge and have also received many requests to make Prime available in Windows phone.
Our Amazon Instant video team is working on this and Prime might be available on windows phone soon.”
Amazon currently has the Amazon Mobile app, Kindle app and Audible app in the Windows Phone Store.
Do our readers think we can expect the Instant Video app to join the list soon? Let us know below.
Thanks ColdCoffee for the tip and screen shot.
Amazon appears to be the gift that keeps on giving, with their latest move cutting the price of the Nokia Lumia 1520 to only $49.99 on contract, with the handset costing $629 commitment-free.
With the handset still costing $199 on contract on AT&T that is a tremendous saving on what is the most high-end Windows Phone so far.

Thanks Gaja for the tip.
Amazon UK is offering a great deal on the good but somewhat unsung Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 820.
The LTE handset with its 4.3 inch WVGA screen also offers 8G of storage and an 8 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, and also other niceties such as NFC and a gyroscope not found in cheaper handsets like the 520 or 625.

Amazon has quite a few apps available on Windows Phone, including a Kindle app and Amazon Mobile. It seems we will soon be able to add a much in demand app to the list, with Amazon, apparently in response to user demand, saying they are working on an Amazon Instant Video app.
Amazon support writes:
Thanks for suggesting that we add Amazon Instant Video App for Windows Phone and Windows RT.
We are receiving so many requests from our customers to make the Amazon Instant Video app available on Windows Devices. Rest assured our development team is already working on this with Windows guys to make this app available in the near future.
Amazon is the second part of the Netflix/Amazon video streaming duopoly, and it would be great news for Windows Phone to also add that solution to the platform.
Thanks Gaurav for the tip.

Amazon is now offering the sleek Windows Phone 8 handset for only £159, not much more expensive than a Nokia Lumia 520 while offering much better specs.

Thanks Terry for the tip.
The Nokia Lumia 1020, with was introduced at $299.99 on contract on AT&T, is slowly edging to a more palatable price.
The handset is now available on Amazon for $249.99 on contract, with the commitment-free price remaining a pricy $669.99.
The handset is in stock, and I think it is testament to the slow sales of the handset that there were no issues with the device constantly being out of stock such as was the case with the Nokia Lumia 1020. It is however slowly edging into Amazon’s Best Seller list, indicating the price cuts is having an effect.
The handset can be seen at Amazon here.
What do our readers think will be the ideal price to charge for the 41 megapixel handset to boost sales? Let us know below.
