PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Now here's an interesting little nugget Jeff Bezos didn't want you to know about when he introduced his new Kindle tablets: the Kindle Fire HD is ad-supported, and originally, you would not have been able to remove those advertisements from the device. Over the weekend, the company reversed this policy, allowing you to permanently remove the advertisements from your Fire HD for $15.

You are pirating if you install Google Play either way, none of the Google apps (Play, Maps, Gmail, etc.) are free. For more "normal" Android devices the cost of paying Google for a license is baked into the purchase price, so installing the Google apps on a Kindle is plain old piracy.

Which I don't say you can't do, but I don't want there to be too much confusion about what is free and not.
