This is a thread about that nice new Amazon Android tablet, the Kindle Fire.
What's so special about it?
It's pretty much a tablet compatible with Android apps, that has the Amazon eco-system built right in. Although it doesn't have access to the Android Marketplace, it does have access to the Amazon App Store, which has most apps you'd ever want. You can sideload btw, so you don't have to root for non-Amazon Market apps.
Recommended Apps (Updated when I feel like it or when people suggest stuff)
Cut the Rope
Eve of the Genesis
Wired Magazine (You can use your current print subscription in the app, so you don't need to buy a new subscription!)
Recommended Comics (Graphic Novels)
V for Vendetta
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
Pretty much an online cloud program similar to dropbox. At the moment you can upload your music and such to it, so you can listen online, or put it on the Kindle. At the moment you can't put documents or other files. All app space is free of course.
If you have Amazon Prime
You get access to thousands of free books, movies, TV shows, etc in the form of unlimited rentals. For example you may borrow 1 book every month.
A fancy webkit based browser exclusive to the Kindle Fire. It uses cloud acceleration, meaning it has the Amazon servers do some of the loading for you, to make browsing faster. You may disable this feature if you wish.
Rooting and CM7 and all that crap
Please note that this causes issues with the streaming service. I also don't care for it, so I'll just paste a link to stuff about it:
FREE Kindle Books (no Kindle required, can read in Amazon program or browser addon)
^Lots of classics like War of the Worlds, Dracula, etc. All good novels, no shit in that all.
I recommend this Kindle reader for browsers:
