Just as we’re sorting through Amazon’s announcements related to their Kindle e-readers and the new Fire tablet, we spotted a press releasementioning Newsstand, an online store dedicated to the digital magazines and newspapers which have been optimized for the Fire’s seven-inch display. It’s pretty much like Apple’s upcoming Newsstand in iOS 5, only Amazon’s has more content. The company explains:

Hundreds of magazines and newspapers – including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, Wired, Elle, The New Yorker, Cosmopolitan and Martha Stewart Living – with full-color layouts, photographs, illustrations, built-in video, audio and other interactive features are available from the new Kindle Fire “Newsstand.” Kindle Fire customers will enjoy an exclusive free three-month trial to 17 Condé Nast magazines, including Vanity Fair, GQand Glamour.
