No official word has come down from Amazon just yet, but new rumors have popped up that the Amazon Appstor for Android will launch as early as tomorrow, March 22nd. The launch will coincide with a new app for Android devices for purchasing and installing applications directly to Android devices, though a web interface will allow for the purchasing of apps from a desktop computer as well.

We first heard of the Amazon Appstore back in the fall, and after countless leaks and rumors culminating in an early peak at the Appstore going online last week (and word of an Angry Birds Rio exclusive), the signs on the horizon suggests we will be seeing this third-party retail giant jumping into the app game very soon.
