Why doesn't the Kindle Fire use the complete Android OS? Does it limit it functionality?

It's bored and looking for downvotes for attention

There are some limitations, but there are more benefits to being part of Amazon's ecosystem.

Now, shoo, little troll.

Curious how the Kindle Fire has 33% of the tablet market, yet the authentic Android, the Nexus 7 has but 8%.

I had a Toshiba Thrive running ICS, and a Kindle Fire HD. I have since sold the Thrive, but I still use the Fire almost every day. I think the key is good integration with Amazon content and Amazon's fantastic customer service. People are buying Kindle Fires that would otherwise have no interest in a tablet.

This whole thread lacks purpose...

There's definitely a purpose. Trolls call it "making people jump through hoops."

Amazon and other tablet makers result are reported below.The claim of 33% of market share for Amazon is more than humorous.

If I say so myself, this is a most interesting discussion.

Considering that this is nearly 2Q13, what relevance does Apple market share from 4Q11, nearly 6 quarters ago, have to an Android discussion?

It's still the 1st qtr of 2013, or does a calendar not register with you? However you are correct that the sales share reported earlier was incorrect, he are the most recent 2012 results.

Tablet shipments worldwide grew by more than expected in the final three months of last year, with more than 50 million units being shipped worldwide.
Apple still dominates the market with the iPad, which accounted for 43.6 per cent of tablet shipments, according to market analysts IDC.
Apple's share fell from 46.4 per cent in the preceding quarter but it still had almost three times the share of Samsung, its nearest rival.
Samsung shipped almost eight million Android and Windows 8 tablets in the last three months of 2012, according to iDC, to take 15.1 per cent of the market.
Amazon was third, with 11.5 per cent of the market, followed by Asus on 5.8 per cent and Barnes and Noble, with 1.9 per cent of the market.
Sorry that you had to correct B. But the ranking have changed little.

What part of our beautiful country does the residents stare at empty or occupied dog houses?

Is the dog jumping the hoop or the hoop jumping the dog?

I will call it quits after 25 posts. This whole thread has been one great disappointment to B. I thought we would get some meaningful discussion about the Kindle Fire, but it seems all the comments are personal attacks on me. Shameful
