Kindle Fire Stops Blocking Android Market Site
Posted by Jon Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 12:00 PM
"Earlier this week, I grilled Amazon for attempting to control web browsing activities on its Kindle Fire. Any attempts to browse Google's Android Market website were redirected to Amazon's own AppStore on the tablet."
One could make the argument that Amazon was just 'helping' users who were going to Google's market website versus their own. Or one could say they didn't want to admit that another, larger, market existed. Whatever your thoughts on Amazon's interesting redirections, they're gone now. The Fire is a pretty nice device, but remember folks, it's Amazon's walled garden, and you just get to play in it!
