But it's android. That's a standard. It's like a new windows PC is being released but is restricted to software available from MS-AppStore.com which has a only a few of the applications available to other windowd PCs.
The Kindle Fire IS an android platform, it should be able to run many of the existing Android apps, but is limited in it's capabilities so some clearly would not work. There is also talk that it can ONLY use the Amazon App store which may or may not prove to be true.
