PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Some impressive new stuff from Amazon today. Great hardware, good price points, and, unlike Nokia, Amazon opens up pre-orders right away and gives us shipping dates. Still, I would personally advice waiting with buying one until you can replace Amazon's Frankendroid with Cyanogenmod or something.

Piracy to get Google apps

Let me note though that you can't install Cyanogenmod or anything like it with the Google apps (Play market, Google maps, Gmail, etc.) on the Kindle, that is pure piracy. If you buy an Android device with Google applications the manufacturer has paid Google a license for them, but you get no license with the Kindle.
