Amazon offers HD opportunity for devs with Appstream

Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) plans to make room in its cloud computing service for mobile app developers who want to offer an HD experience are being welcomed with open arms.

The company recently launched Amazon AppStream, which uses the company's new g2 EC2 instances to stream applications in high definition from the cloud to any mobile device.

One of the company's cloud computing evangelists actually broke the news on Twitter to explain the product's background:

So far the response online has been very positive among developers.

The more cautious voices, perhaps not unexpectedly, came from the analyst community.

There were at least a few, however, who saw some value not merely in what Appstream could do but also in its name recognition potential.
