Amazon has announced that it will be making the Washington Post newspaper available for free to Kindle Fire users.

The app will be bundled with with an update and will allow users of the tablet 6 months of free unlimited access usually reserved to subscribers of the newspaper. The news isn’t particularly surprising, as Jeff Bezos, the co-founder and CEO of Amazon, now owns the Washington Post, after acquiring it last year. Users will receive a tablet-friendly app, similar to other newspaper-based apps. Two additions of the paper will be pushed to the app at 5.00am and 5.00pm US Eastern Time.

As The Next Web points out, it appears that Amazon has made efforts to avoid the controversy Apple encountered in September when they ‘forced’ a free U2 album upon everyone – the Washington Post app can be deleted if you don’t want it.
