    You may have noticed that Nokia South Africa has launched a new blog called Nokia Ringaz: Nokia today announced the virtual introduction of its South African blog, titled Nokia Ringaz (pronounced Ring-uz), http://ringaz.nokia.co.za/.

    I just noticed that the Kindle app for Android is available. DeWitt Clinton posted a few thoughts about the Kindle for Android app on Buzz and I rushed to the Kindle for Android page on the Amazon site for the lowdown and a link to the download page on the Android Marketplace.
