More interesting, for me, is that apparently it has been cleared by the CRTC for use in Canada. That would be a plus, for sure, since the original Fire is somewhat limited here. It might also mean that we can now expect video on demand from Amazon.ca, something they aren't yet doing.

I see where they've filed for approval, but I don't see that the FCC has actually approved the device. Is there something I'm missing?

I've never heard of a regular device like a tablet not getting approved, not unless it didn't pass tests. I seriously doubt that will happen n this case, and that's why when paperwork shows up that is basically a sign that the device has been certified by the FCC.
