Amazon’s Kindle Fire Will Have Access to Android Apps but Not Via The Android Market


Wednesday 09th of November 2011 / talkandroid.com
It appears that Amazon didn’t want their Kindle Fire to get lost in the hype of all the latest tablet news and released some new info with hopes to re-kindle the fire. After today’s Asus Transformer Prime announcement, Amazon dropped a new press release describing the ins and outs of its latest tablet endeavor, and yes, its Android powered.Will the Kindle Fire be an Android tablet? Will we have access to the Android Market? These have been questions on all of our minds and the answer is yes and no. Literally in that order. The Kindle Fire is powered by Android but will be accompanied by a custom UI, unfortunately you will not have access to the Android Market with the official build of the OS (but you can bet the devs will cook something up!). You will though, have access to thousands of apps via Amazon’s very own market, the Amazon Appstore. Here, check out what Amazon has to offer://When Kindle Fire customers across the country open their boxes next week, they will be able to choose from several thousand of the most popular Android apps and games, including Netfli

Rooting Kindle Fire Breaks Amazon Video (And How To Make It Work)


Wednesday 16th of November 2011 / phandroid.com
Packages of the Amazon Kindle Fire have already made their way to thousands of porches, been torn open, powered up, and I’m sure a good number of you are going the route of rooting the Kindle Fire. (Side note: we’ve got an entire forum dedicated to Kindle Fire Rooting.) I’ve heard from many Kindle Fire pre-orderers who claimed the majority of their excitement was gathered around streaming Netflix and Amazon video directly to their affordable 7-inch Android Kindle. That’s all fine and dandy but be warned: Rooting your Kindle Fire will break Amazon Video.Amazon Video is integrated into the Fire’s homescreen so it seems like a tab. But in reality, it’s an application, and this application checks for the su binary: “system/bin/su” and/or “/system/xbin/su” when starting up. That’s the “super user” binary and if Amazon finds it, they know you’re rooted, and they disallow Amazon Video- instead displaying this message:“Your device is no longer configured correctly to play Amazon videos.

Android powered Kindle Fire on track to top the iPad in first-month sales


Tuesday 04th of October 2011 / talkandroid.com
Amazon’s Kindle Fire is attracting a ton of attention. Still six weeks from launch, the $199 Fire has racked up 250,000 pre-orders over the past few days. Basically they’re receiving about 2,000 pre-orders per hour. If that trend continues the Fire will incinerate the iPad’s record for first-month sales. The iPad sold a million units in it’s first month, whereas the Kindle is now projected to sell 1.5 million. While that is still a ways away from the iPad 2′s 2.5 million, the Fire is undoubtedly re-kindling the competition. If they succeed in pushing that many Kindle’s on their first run, who’s to say a Fire 2 won’t come along and reduce the iPad 2′s record to ashes. Some estimates even peg Amazon to push 15 million Fires by 2013. In any case, it’s shaping up to be the most successful Android Tablet to date.//So readers, did any of you contribute to the Kindle Fire’s wild success story, or are you just waiting to see it crash and burn?[via androidpolice]» See more articles by Jim Farmer//

Is Amazon Converting the Kindle to Android?


Saturday 19th of March 2011 / everythingandroid.org
According to the New York Times Blog, Amazon is currently recruiting Android developers to work in their famed Lab 126, the development area of Amazon that designed and developed Amazon’s Kindle e-reader. This of course is not an official confirmation of an Android-powered Kindle, but definitely suggests that Amazon is looking for Android developers to further their involvement in our favorite mobile operating system.There are, of course, ups and downs to an Android-powered Kindle but we’ll reserve our judgement until we hear an official word on the subject. The Kindle’s battery life is something of legend and we’d hate to see Android come on board and drain those resources a bit more quickly than what the Kindle has produced in the past but time will definitely tell.[Android Community]Related posts:Amazon Kindle Fire Will Not Support Android MarketThe New Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet Will Set You Back Just $199Kindle for Android ComingKindle for Android now available
