They will just to build the user base. More people would be inclined to buy the Kindle Fire if the services they use work on it. Once they get their clutches on those folks is time enough to start closing the holes.

It will be interesting to see if Amazon gets some of the bigger players to customize/optimize their apps specifically for the Fire-that would be a really nice differentiator.

It was a strategic announcement. 48 hours after the dust settles from the NT announcement and they drop a blockbuster. War games...

And it didnt cost them anything to do it eirther, heck half the things they announced were already on the amazon market like pandora and rhapsody only netflix was the game changer and still didnt cost them anything as the amazon developers already had it ready to go.

Amazon held it back just for this type of situation.

Competition is good.
Up to a point.
Some companies get so hung up on competition, on hurting the "enemy", they forget that job one is making money to stay in business.
It doesn't help consumers if a company drives itself over a cliff in profitless competition.
It's good to have competition now but it wouod be better to still have it three-five years down the road.

i agree with you, i think thats why Amazon waited untill they had everything before they launched an android device. instead of every other manufacturer releasing a device with little support or ecosystem.

Amazon could have followed the pack and release an android 2 years ago, but instead they built an ecosystem with one of the largest libraries in the world, one of the largest video libraries int he world, a very large and robust app market that no other brand besides apple and google can match
