    I also use Amazon's AppStore. I find that the choices are very similar, in many cases duplicated, but that it leads to confusion when updates are called for. If I have, say Slacker radio installed on my phone from Google's market, and from Amazon on my Xoom, they constantly want to update each other. Since they are "signed" differently, they are not seen as the same app. So now, I have to try to remember which device I got which app from which store. Kind of irritating, actually.

    The Android Market will always have the greatest selection of apps, but the smaller stores are usually policed a bit better for content -- as in no malware, which does sneak in from time to time on the Market.
