Amazon and Samsung have today announced that the two companies will launch an e-Book download service designed specifically for the South Korean handset maker’s range of Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

As part of the partnership, the companies will also launch ‘Samsung Book Deals’, which will be open to anyone using the Kindle for Samsung app. This will provide users with up to 12 free e-Books per year from a selection of four different free books per month.

It’ll first be available for the Galaxy S5, starting sometime this month, before being expanded out to include other devices. The companies said Kindle for Samsung is available to download now in more than 90 countries from the Samsung app store.
