Amazon Canada just opened, and apps you cannot get via either Amazon store can be downloaded straightaway from other Android app stores like mobile1.com and a number of others I've listed on the blog. Received a couple of notes from people in Brazil who found this workaround works well for them.
You'll need to enable installation of apps from 'unknown sources' under Device in the Kindle Fire Settings. B&N doesn't allow this, but Amazon does and it's made all the difference.
