"Go to the Kindle Fire page and find where it says it's running Android. If the manufacturer of the device doesn't say it's running Android, and it certainly doesn't pass Google's definition of a device that can call itself an Android device, how is it an Android device?


It runs Android applications just fine?
"

(In theory) so will the Playbook.

No, the play book will play *some* android apps, not all or even most. Anything doing anything with hardware, or certain apis, or using native code via the NDK will not work.

I'm not aware of a single android app that will not work on the fire.
