Kindle Fire Edition now renamed Kindle Tablet Edition, Universal

Some apps are now marked as (Kindle Tablet Edition) instead of the old (Kindle Fire Edition). Looking at the developer notes, it seems Amazon is pushing for universal iOS-like apps that you buy once and they work everywhere (for Game Circle purposes I'm thinking):

Quote:
Device Targeting—New!

Q: What does Amazon device targeting do?

This feature enables you to take a single app and target specific APKs to specific Amazon devices, as well as target a single, general APK that covers all other non-Amazon Android devices.

Q: How does device targeting help me, the developer?

Better search relevancy for your app. Instead of having multiple apps (i.e. an HD version and a SD version) for a single title, your app’s Customer Reviews, page views, downloads, etc. are consolidated to a single app—pushing your app up in search and relevancy rankings.
Reduced customer confusion. Customers won’t be confused by multiple device-specific versions of your app.
Device-specific feature optimization. You can tailor your APK for screen size and density, OpenGL compression format, and API version.

Q: How do versionCode and versionName need to be formatted for my app using device targeting?

VersionName must be the same for each APK within an instance of an app (format of X.X.X where X is an integer).

VersionCode must be different for each APK within an instance of an app (format of X where X is an integer). It will help your tracking if you increment your versionCode when submitting an app update, but you may use the same X as a previous versionCode if you desire.
Looking at the portal, seems that developers have to FTP everything for now to take advantage of it, but it'll be interesting to see how this works out.

Will the first Gen Kindle fire be abandoned or will it at least get Android 4 in an update?
I Dont care either way but just curious what the plan might be

Think they would cut their own throats if they did abandoned the first one, If they have kept the k3 in the firmware updates. The first fire maybe looked upon in the same way. (?) Some day there maybe a cut off point for the kindle family's first model generations as they seem to be doing now, the dx for example. It seem that they judge by how popular the device is in determining how long to continue support. I thinky?

We're about to find out. They've just started putting up blank software updates pages for the new Kindles up.
