Install Android Market on Your Kindle Fire

"Homebrewers, of course, will first have to root the device before tweaking with the Fire's Gingerbread-based build, but fortunately for them, there's already a guide for that. Once that's taken care of, you can also load the Android Market and a slate of other Google apps, using a handy how-to guide published on xda Forums."

Amazon released the source code for the Kindle Fire. That means we'll probably start to see all kinds of custom ROM's or other modifications coming out for it soon. One of the first things they did was figure out how to install the Android Market! They made a nice how-to in case you want to give it a try. The first step is rooting it but if that doesn't scare you go for it!

How do you like your Kindle Fire? Have you rooted it?

"The solution comes courtesy of a user lovingly known as "death2all11o," who posted the "1-click' recipe to Android Forums earlier today."

If you bought the Kindle Fire hoping to get full access to the OS to "make the device yours" you don't need to wait anymore! Now there is a documented method for rooting this nifty $200 e-reader.

Updated: I just saw that if you root the Kindle Fire you will not be able to use Amazon streaming video.

Android and NOOKcolor Will Stay Separate

"We were contacted by a representative this afternoon regarding the alleged NOOKcolor update due in January. As we feared, the news was too good to be true. The NOOKcolor is not getting the Android Market..."

The NOOKcolor and Android will not be teaming up to bring Android to the e-reader. This doesn't come as a big surprise that Barnes & Noble wants to stick with it's own development team. Though it would have been nice to have access to the Android market, but there are always ways!
