    I am not sure if this discussion should be allowed to continue. Trying to circumvent geographical constraint might very well be illegal.

    XDA has found a way...
    How to Use Amazon App Store Outside of the US | xda-developers

    Basically you don't have to live in the US just have a US address and a US credit card, and If you read the thread attached to their article as a source you may want to avoid using fake info as Amazon does not like that.

    Now we are touching a grey area.
    However, as long as the usage of anonymous proxies is legal, I think we can continue discussing the matter.

    Hint: There is post on XDA forums on how to bypass Amazon check by simply using a tor client on Android phone (Orbot).

    I dont think you have to use tor according to the discussion over there. I personally would not try if I lived outside of the US unless I actually had a US address and credit card already. Devs want to make money if the Amazon store remains US exclusive then the devs will go back to the Android Market to reach more users.

    The Amazon store becomes interesting if there is "hot" exclusive content, or if the prices are lower than in Market. For example, if Amazon presents an app free for one day, while it remains a paid app in Market, then there is an interest to access it.

    I leave outside US, but so far it has not picked enough interest in me to want to access it.

    Regardless of whether the intention is purely to obtain the daily "free offer" or not, if it involves providing false billing details to Amazon then discussion of it isn't appropriate here due to possible legal issues.
