I tried accessing their App store, and frankly after not being successful gave up on Amazon's extra services.
The Arc isn't really aimed at the U.S. market, and it seems that at the moment that's all Amazon cares about with it's tablet. If I choose not to get an Arc, it will be because I'll go with the Microsoft tablet or the Nexus tablet. It certainly won't be for a Fire I can't use.
I've heard about Canadians having issues with getting access to Amazon Kindle content, but...I haven't had any issues doing this with the Kindle App on my Android phone. I've bought tons of books using my Amazon account. Would it be different to get my Kindle purchases/library connected to the Fire with my Canadian address?
