Whoa whoa whoa my ass. As I said.

The point of this whole thread is about apps for Fire. Because it is very limited in its hardware many apps simply will not work. On top of that the entire reason for it's existence is for Amazon to sell stuff. It is NOT a generic Android Tablet. Yes that's a period.

Google expects many things from a device for it to meet it's optimal requirements -- two of those being a camera, gps, and a gyroscope -- none of which I understand are in the Fire. It is NOT a generic tablet because it is crippled.
